  • Amazing murals of Cardenas. Free entrance
  • The old Palace of Justice, in Morelia, is a beautiful building with a Frenchified façade and an eclectic style that today functions as the Museum and Historical Archive of the Judicial Power of Michoacán. This was the first Historical Museum of the Judiciary in Mexico and was inaugurated on May 18, 2004. On the site that this construction occupies today, the Governing Board of the Spaniards was established in the old Valladolid, which is why it was called the Town Hall, and it worked until the time of Independence. Towards the year 1812, the building functioned as a Mint, where copper coins with the emblem of the Army of the South, commanded by Don José María Morelos y Pavón, were minted. After the comprehensive remodeling of 1884, the front building was established as the formal seat of the Supreme Court of Justice of Michoacán as "Palace of Justice". Currently you can visit from Monday to Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
