 Barrio de La MejoradaDebe su nombre al convento franciscano de Nuestra Señora del Tránsito o de La Mejorada del siglo XVII. Esta construcción ha tenido usos muy diversos, como Hospital, Escuela de Artes y Oficios }, Prefectura de Policía y alojamiento de las familias de los soldados del Cuartel Militar, antes de convertirse en sede de la Facultad de Arquitectura de la UADY. Colinda con esta edificación de origen franciscàno, otra importante construcción colonial, el Cuartel de los Dragones de Caballería, antigua sede de la Guarnición militar de Mérida. A principios del siglo XX, la explanada ubicada enfrente del convento albergó una estación de ferrocarriles, misma que se desmanteló en 1920 para dar paso a un espacio público. Desde 1970 se conoce como Parque de los Niños Héroes. Entre los siglos XIX y XX durante el auge henequenero de Yucatán, en este barrio se ubicaron los principales corchaderos o desfibradoras, así como talleres y equipamiento de apoyo a las haciendas henequeneras.
English:Neighborhood of La MejoradaNamed after the Franciscan convent of Our Lady of the Transit



or "La Mejorada" in the 17th Century, this building has had diverse purposes, including Hospital, School of Arts and Crafts, Police Headquarters, and lodging for families of the soldiers in the Millitary Quarters, before becoming site for the School of Architecture of the Autonomous University of Yucatan (UADY). This building of Franciscan origin borders with the Dragons of Cavalry Quarter, an old military site in
Merida. Early in the 20th Century, the esplanade located in front of the convent hosted a train station, which was dismantled in 1920 to make room for a public space. Since 1970, it is known as Park of the Young Heroes. Between 19th and 20th Centuries, during the "henequen" (sisal fiber) boom in Yucatan, this neighborhood housed the main fiber processing plants, as well as shops and equipment supporting the henequen-producing Haciendas.
