Not too many governmental office are usually this accessible. The artwork and historical information is quite informative. My wife and I enjoyed poking around for a couple hours here. Clean restrooms, staff is friendly, and photo ops are plentiful.

My wife and I were able to tour the Palacio and enjoyed every minute. You need to register and then go to where the Murals of Orosco are located. Do not miss this.

At a glance, there is nothing particularly interesting about this building. It's seems like a typical city palace. However as you walk up the main stairs all of your attention is grabbed by a huge mural on the ceiling, a stunning, yet powerful painting about...More
