While in Mexico, we visited the small village Valladolid. – Yucatan. Named after the capital of spain at the time then the village was established around 1543, the location of the town has moved from the original site, because the spanish settlers wanted to avoid the mosquitos. But the Mayans living in the desired area put up a fight for over a year, and it had to take troops coming in from Merida. So unfortunately the mayans had to pay a huge price for the new location of the village. The town was moved inland, but in january 1847 the Mayans had an uprising, which ended up with the latino forces was forced to abandon Valladolid. At the time there was 15.000 people living here, and in 2010 the official population was increased to around 45.000 inhabitants.
