As mentioned in many other reviews, this place (also called Casa de Visitas) is not generally opened to the public as it is still used for government purposes. You only get to admire the very well kept outside. A good idea would perhaps be to post photos of its interior nearby so people could get a feel for what life inside is like. The façade is plateresque (in the manner of a silversmith) in style and has six lobed arches between which are carved five stone balconies. Above them is an elaborate cornice with a large cross. Over the years (1792-1940) many high-ranking people lived there. The property was acquired by the state government in 1940 to give lodging to distinguished visitors. Since President Lázaro Cárdenas began the tradition in 1940, the fifth year in office of each six-year term, the president of the republic has been staying in this house when he goes to Dolores to celebrate the Cry of Dolores on the morning of September 16 (the trigger for the Mexican War of Independence of 1810).

A beautiful building across from the park. It is next to the main Church and the Bicentennial museum. We could never t get into the building on Saturday, but the outside is very nice. This town is so clean and neat.

The Visitors House is a very nice building next to the central plaza with the statue of Miguel Hidalgo. The architecture is old but in good condition. The town is very clean as are most of the interior towns and cities we have visited.

Not much to see beside the beautiful courtyard. The sub delegate for the Spanish government originally lived here in 1976. The facade consist of six arches over which stone carved balconies were erected. In 1940, the house was acquired by the state government and converted into a residence for visiting dignitaries. Every five years the current Mexican President stays here when giving the "Exclamation of Independence"

You can only see some of the courtyard but it is a beautiful and tranquil space. The house is reserved for political figures that are visiting not for touris :(
