Overview

Built at the end of the 18th century, this old building houses the state governor's offices. It is a neoclassical creation with a grand staircase and eight columns that frame the main entrance. Each one of its windows has an arch on the top,8 while small balconies overlook the Explanada de los Héroes (Heroes' Esplanade). Inside you will find five patios connected to each other, beautiful picture windows and medallions painted by V. Balero. Visit in February when two of Mexico's most important national holidays occur: Día de la Constitución and Día de la Bandera.
