Yuriria Lagoon

Laguna de Yuriria

At the same time as the religious building of San Pablo was being erected, the Laguna de Yuriria was shaping up to be the first 16th-century large hydraulic construction in America. Friar Diego de Chávez was in charge of the project. This lagoon is 11 miles long and 4 miles wide, and you can see several islands on it, among which the Isla de San Pedro, El Fuerte and Las Cabras stand out.
