he city of Campeche, a World Heritage site since 1999, has a long and colorful history due to its importance as a port city. One of the city’s principal attractions are the remnants of the walls built to protect citizens against marauding pirates.

You can visit what remains of these walls with an easy walk from anywhere close to the center of the city. Look for the museum entrance and take a look inside. The museum may be small and have few artifacts but it is worth a 15- to 30-minute visit (the entrance fee is also very inexpensive).

A relaxing stroll along the top of the walls offers some good photographic opportunities and some decent views of the surrounding city.

Out of all the bastions in Campeche, that of San Carlos is the most picturesque.
It is quite unique as it is the only one that has an alarm sounding bell that would have been rung at the time of an attack.
Do ensure you visit this museum as well.

This lovely museum cost about $5 to visit, and had wonderful recreated rooms from 19th Century Campeche... a parlor, bedroom and kitchen. There was also a gift shop and book stall. All within a charming old building with a great courtyard, where local professional types and office workers were taking a morning cup of coffee. Wonderful place.
