  • I was not impressed by the artwork in the Palacio Municipal. It seemed to be political, celebrating the Mexican Revolution with disturbing images. However, there is a free baño inside.  more »
  • Pretty square surrounded by the Palace of the Governor and the Cathedral, both especially pretty at night when they are lit. It is here to be to measure the pulse of the local population and why not, shine your shoes on a Chair from the century last as this profession disappeared today in Europe, still exists at the Mexico.

  • Visit the Mérida city hall situated in the beautiful Palace. After entering the first floor we can admire a beautiful Gallery of contemporary Mexican artists images. Their sizes are impressive. There is a beautiful view from the Windows on the main square of Mérida. I would recommend this property.

  • Palace which now houses the offices of the State Government, was built in the same place where the old "Casas Reales" in colonial times, the host Governments of Yucatan and many of his aides. Its location is in the crossing of two of the busiest streets of Merida: 60 and 61. The design of the Palace, as we see it today, has been conducted in 1879 during the Government of Manuel Romero Ancona license, according to a design engineer Olegario g. Canton. In 1883 the original building was demolished, but the construction of the new building did not begin until 2 April 1887, when he ruled the General Octavio Rosado, who laid the foundation stone. The building was completed in 1892 and was inaugurated on 15 September of that year by then-Gov. Colonel Daniel Traconis. The engineers have lent their cooperation Solis Vicente Leon and David Casares. Palazzo, Classicist, eclectic style covers an area of 42 square metres in front and behind. It has 2 floors adorned with portals and a beautiful stone quarry. Inside, there is a large central courtyard. Its façade looks like a replica of the Bell of the Church of the village of Dolores, the priest Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla used to summon the people to a fight that ended with independence. The 1905 was adapted to the Palace (now useless) meteorological observatory; in 1920 the set was revamped and 3 January 1931 the bust of Felipe Carrillo Puerto, by master Alfonso Cardona, in the rest of the main staircase was discovered. For years that sculpture was not there. During the Government of Carlos Loret de Mola (1970-1976) and Dr. Francisco Luna Kan (1976-1982), the great painter of Yucatan Fernando Castro Pacheco (1918-2013) reflects 27 murals depicting the steps of life, which are spread over two floors of the building. Taken from (Yucatán)

  • This municipal Palace which is very old has a considerable size and a great architectural design worthy representative of the importance that once had the city of Merida, highlighting the large number of arcs that can be seen in its facade
