El Obispado is no longer open to the public. The general public isn't allowed inside anymore, to preserve it. Supposedly the mexicans fought off an army from the U.S.A. relatively easily from the high elevation. Pancho Villa supposedly hid there for a time. The view of Monterrey at night from Obispado is spectacular. Bring a good camera and a tripod.
