Fodor's Review

Some of Campeche's finest homes were built on this street between Calles 8 and 18. Most of the two-story structures were originally dual-purpose, with warehouses on the ground floor and living quarters above; these days, behind the delicate grillwork and lace curtains, you can glimpse genteel scenes of local life. The best-preserved houses are between Calles 14 and 18 (many of those closer to the sea have been remodeled or destroyed by fire). Campeche's INAH (Instituto Nacional de Antropología e Historia) office, between Calles 14 and 16, is a prime example; each month it displays a different archaeological artifact in its courtyard. At the end of Calle 59 is Puerta de Mar, a main entrance to the historic city. Look for the names of the apostles carved into the lintels of houses between Calles 16 and 18.
