  • Beautifully maintained restored old building that holds government offices with a gallery of large paintings depicting the history of Yucatan on the second floor.
  • The murals are worth your time and attention. The architecture is cool, too. It is free to visit. Don't be intimidated by the armed guards--they will not bother you.
