Facing Plaza de la Constitución, also known as the Zócalo, the Ayuntamiento, (Town Hall) is comprised of two buildings. The west building was originally built in 1532, but destroyed by fire in 1692, was rebuilt in 1722. The outer walls are decorated with ceramic tiles depicting the conquistadors. The east building was built in 1935, commissioned by the local authorities for needed space. The newer building, inspired by the older construction, was designed and built to harmonise with the historic architecture of the plaza.
