Capilla AbiertaLa construcción de la capilla se puede fechar entre 1590 y 1600; su ubicación dentro de la Plaza Central sugiere que en este espacio, ya desde tiempos prehispánicos se llevaban a cabo ceremonias importantes, que se prolongaron hasta la época de la conquista con la religión católica; se supone que en esta entonces Dzibilchaltún tenía una población numerosa que justificó la construcción de la capilla. En el frente se puede apreciar la base que delimitaba su extensión, zona que quedó cubierta por lo que fue su nave, hecha de paja y morillos de madera. Conserva aún estuco pintado. Los restos de la casa cural, que se pueden ver inmediatamente al norte, albergaron a los frailes que llegaban a oficiar.

Its placement in the Central Square suggests that, since Pre-Hispanic times, this space was used for important ceremonies; ceremonies that continued within the Hispano-Catholic ritual. It is understood that Dzibilchaltun was sufficiently populated to justify the construction of a chapel. From the front one can see the baser that outlined its extension, an area covered with what once was its nave, made out of straw and branches. The painted stucco can still be seen. The remains of the parish, directly to the North, housed the Friars who came to officiate.
