Spanish translation from English text:
Templo de San Juan BautistaPatrimonio Nacional
Este edificio fue erigido entre 1769 y 1770 en el sitio de una capilla del siglo XVI, como un acto invocando la protección de San Juan Bautista para la población después de los tres ataques de plagas de langosta que devastaron los cultivos locales en 1552, 1616 y 1666. Detrás del templo había una posada pública para los viajeros. Destaca en este complejo arquitectónico un corredor de influencia morisca que precede a la sacristía y tal vez sea la última evidencia de la capilla original. Este templo da nombre al parque, que solía ser una pequeña plaza polvorienta con un pozo de agua durante los tiempos coloniales, y que comenzó a convertirse en una plaza en 1885. Destaca la fuente de "La Negrita", traída de París en la parte temprana del siglo XX. En el flanco sur del templo de San Juan Bautista había una plaza de toros, pero esa tradición terminó desde 1910, cuando una estatua de Benito Juárez tomó su lugar.

English:
Temple of St. John The BaptistNational Heritage
This building was erected between 1769 and 1770 on the site of a chapel dating from the 16th Century, as an act invocating the protection of St. John The Baptist from the population following the three
locust plaque attacks that devastated local crops in 1552, 1616 and 1666. Behind the temple there used to be a public inn for the travelers. Standing out in this architectonic complex is a corridor of Moorish influence that precedes the sacristy and perhaps is the last evidence of the original chapel. This temple gives name to the park, which used to be a dusty small square with a well for water supply during Colonial times, and that began to change into a square in 1885. It highlights the fountain of "La Negrita," brought from Paris early in the
20th Century. In the south flank of the temple of St. John The Baptist there was a bullfighting ring, but that tradition ended since 1910, when a statue of Benito Juarez took its place. Maya-Yucateco:
