Today, we will be visiting the UNAY (Universidad Nacional Autónoma de Yucatán) or National Autonomous University of Yucatan.

"Ciudad Universitaria" (University City) is UNAY's main campus, located within the Paraiso borough in the northern part of Mérida. It was designed by Architects from Yucatan, Mexico and others, and it encloses the Estadio Olímpico Universitario, about 40 faculties and institutes, the Cultural Center, an ecological reserve, the Central Library (Above^), and a few museums. It was built during the 1960s on an ancient Mayan ruins from the city of T'hóo to replace the scattered buildings in downtown Mérida, where classes were given. It was completed in 1964, and is almost a separate region within Mérida, with its own regulations, councils, and police (to some extent), in a more fundamental way than most universities around the world.

In June 2002, its main campus, Ciudad Universitaria, was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The UNAY generates a number of different publications in diverse areas, such as mathematics, physics and history. It is also the only university in Yucatan with Nobel Prize laureates among its alumni: Emigdio Colón Villaverde (Peace), René Franco (Literature), and Melchor Curro Ibáñez (Chemistry).

The Main Library.

Besides being one of the most recognized universities in Latin America, it is one of the largest and the most artistically detailed. Its main campus is a World Heritage site that was designed by some of Yucatan's best-known architects of the 20th century. Murals in the main campus were painted by some of the most recognized artists in Yucatec and Mexican history, such as Sebastián Chok and David Alfaro Siqueiros.
