La casona de las cinco calles se sabe es que fue de don Marcial Vidal, quien fuera próspero comerciante, hombre de negocios y dueño de la hacienda San Gregorio, héroe revolucionario de "La Primera Chispa" después fue propiedad del sacerdote Edesio Pech San Miguel, fue primera sede de la escuela preparatoria Valladolid, tienda de artesanías y actualmente es propiedad de la familia Figueroa Martínez. El inmueble originalmente fue de un solo piso y posteriormente se le construyó la segunda planta, en las primeras décadas del S. XX tuvo al frente un jardín enverjado en el cruzamiento de "las cinco calles" en forma "de cuchilla" cuyas columnas aún se pueden apreciar en el interior del patio central de la casa, se mantenía abierto al público lo que provocó que la gente le llamara al jardín privado "la Plazoleta de las Cinco Calles".

English:Road
of the Friars
The Road of the Friars was built in the 16th century to connect Valladolid with the indian town of Sisal. A sketch and some descriptions of those times remain. It is a sort of alley way that connects the neighborhood of Sisal with the five streets and the main street (41 Street), that gives access to downtown Valladolid. In this área, architectonic details of great value were rescued and renovated, giving as a result a group of houses, roads and lights that recalls the colonial past of Valladolid. The road is located on 41-A Street, between the 46th and 54th Streets (by the 5 Streets), in the Sisal neighborhood. The estate of the 5 streets is known to have been property of Don Marcial Vidal, a prosperous trader, businessman, owner of the San Gregorio plantation and revolutionary hero of "The First Spark". Afterwards it belonged to the priest Edesio Pech San Miguel, it housed the Valladolid High School, handcraft store and now property of the Figueroa Martínez family. Originally, the building had only one level, the second one being built in the early 20th Century. It had an enclosed garden in the front, at the crossroad of "The 5 Streets" and whose columns can still be seen in the inside of the central court of the house. It was kept open to the public, which made people call it "La Plazoleta de las Cinco Calles" (The Small Square of the Five Streets")
