El Convento de Sisal a Través de la Historia / History of the Sisal Monastery

Este imponente estructura, cuya construcción concluyó en 1613, es ejemplo de una avanzada ingeniería hidáulica y la segunda noria más grande de Yucatán.En su interior se encuentra una de las bocas del cenote que salía hacia la cocina, de donde los frailes extraían el agua para el servicio de la comunidad y cultivo de la huerta. Actualmente, de su estructura sólo queda la plataforma sobre la que está construida, fragmentos de muros y dos arcos de mampostería que conforman el esqueleto de la bóveda esférica que la cubría. English:The WaterwheelThe construction of this imposing structure, concluded in 1613, became an amazing example of hydraulic engineering and the second largest waterwheel in Yucatan. In its interior there is access to the one of the cenotes, which opened up into the kitchen and from where the monks extracted water to be used by the community and for growing vegetables in the garden. Currently, only the platform - on which the waterwheel was built - as well as fragments of walls and two masonry arches forming the skeleton of the original vault, still remain.
