In the historical center of Mérida there are several free visits that you can enjoy. One of them is the building of the Municipal Palace, seat of the current city hall of Mérida, located in one of the streets that overlook the Plaza Grande.

Surely the city ​​Hall It is the most tasteless visit you can do in the mere Plaza Grande de Mérida. But it does not stop having its surprises and good corners, such as the backyard, the attractive views from the porch and a lobby hall.

Municipal Palace of Merida

The pink building that we see today, was built in the year 1734, going through several reforms that have been changing it consistently. One of the most remarkable is in the year 1871 when the first Mérida watch is placed. The municipal offices used to be close to the Government Palace, another of the government buildings to visit.
