That's the famous horse stable at La Cupula! I think it was connected to the houses that became Rosas y Xocolocate, or one of the mansions along the Paseo. It's a private home and was recently the site of a fund-raiser for the Oasis. A corner plaque on 41 and 54 honors it: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Esquina_de_La_C%C3%BApula,_M%C3%A9rida,_Yucat%C3%A1n_(01).JPG
Ahh..., so it was a stable. Interesting.
The horsie is there for a reason! : )
Which explains the pretty picture of the horsie!
I love the plaque with the horsie.
I'm pretty sure it was the stables of the Palacio Canton which is the Museo de Antropologia now but was a private home.
Thanks for sharing that information, John and Josh. Quite a grand stable!
