The Church at Yaxcabá witnessed terrible battles between the whites and the Maya
during the War of the Castes. The corner pillboxes and the musket-slits in the fortified
buildings are evidence of the desperate sieges that both sides, in their turn, mounted or
withstood in this place. Both sides suffered defeat and gained victory as this strategic place
changed hands several times during the war.
