If you head towards the Plaza Bolívar coming north up Avenida 4, the first building to your right is the Palacio Arzobispal or Archbishop's Palace. This Renaissance-style construction was started in 1933 and concluded in 1951. You can appreciate its stunning outside facade as well as its gorgeous interior layout. Here within the seat of the Archbishop of Mérida, you will find corridors, stairs and halls full of valuable artistic works, including the Portrait Gallery of Mérida's Bishops, a collection of paintings by Cardinal José Humberto Quintero.
