Yucatan and Campeche States Sights

Palacio del Gobierno

Updated 03/08/2013

Fodor's Review

Visit the seat of state government to see Fernando Castro Pacheco's murals of the bloody history of the conquest of the Yucatán, painted in bold colors in the 1970s and influenced by the Mexican muralists José Clemente Orozco and David Alfaro Siquieros. On the main balcony (visible from outside on the plaza) stands a reproduction of the Bell of Dolores Hidalgo, on which Mexican independence rang out on the night of September 15, 1810, in the town of Dolores Hidalgo in

Guanajuato. On the anniversary of the event, the governor rings the bell to commemorate the occasion.
