This museum is great. I took a few pictures of his work there, so that I can appreciate it fully. I've been lucky enough to see his work at a couple of places in both America and Europe. I would recommend this place and his work to anyone.
When I went there there was a guide telling the story of the mural in the wall on the stairs, and it was amazing, if you can go there talk to a guide and let them talk to you about the history, and then go to the cathedral.
My plan was to go to this beautiful place, and while because of the decorations to celebrate national holidays, approaching, this meant that only had access to the patio and could not go to other sections, that are apparently the government offices. Something interesting is that it is built on what was the old Court. The image presented today, dates from the early twentieth century and it is strongly reminiscent of the classic neo porfiriana. Inside there is a courtyard with a beautiful marble staircase, as well as major salones. This very nice place, cannot be missed! The entrance to this place is free!
This majestic palace, of Baroque style, dates from the mid-seventeenth century is one of the most important architectural monuments of the city. Its doors are currently open to the public as a multidisciplinary center whose mission is to promote the dissemination of the culture of the region. It originally hosted the Jesuit College of San Francisco Javier and was subsequently a correctional facility for priests that settled here in 1824 during the Congress of Michoacán.
The Government Palace was built in the mid-nineteenth century in the great architectural tradition of colonial Guadalajara. Inside you can also see the typical mural (on the foundation of the city). It is located in the plaza of Guadalajara, next to the cathedral and the rotunda of Illustrious Jalisco.
This metal building was completely disassembled and brought from Antwerp, Belgium to the port of Veracruz Mexico between 1892 and 1893 in three separate steamships. It's French Art Nouveau style and was designed by the famed Alexandre Gustave Eiffel. It served as the Municipal Palace from September 16, 1894 thru January 7, 1991. Its beautiful structure currently houses museums, exhibition halls, a Grand Room, the tourist office and an exquisite cafeteria.
This is an interesting 16th century building that made up a part of the Convent of Santa Maria de Gracia. I didn't get to see it open during the time I was in Guadalajara (in my guide put it open Monday to Friday from 9:00 to 15:00). It faces the Degollado theater and from what I could tell me, it is worth entering the palace and walk through their yards.
The House of Culture is located at City Hall in the heart of the Mexican city of Valladolid in the Yucatan. It is also opposite the Plaza de Francisco Canton and near the fantastic Park Francisco Canton Rosado. This museum is the second most visited attraction in Valladolid, receiving 4000 visitors in 2009. It was founded on January 1st 1995 and has an area of 600 square meters distributed across a theater, auditorium and exhibition areas, which currently house the exhibition of ancient conquerors. The City Hall building is facing the most significant monuments of the city such as the Cathedral of San Gervasio or Servatius.
This building adorns the central park in Cordoba. It was built in 1905 in the predominantly florentine-neoclassical style. The 21 ground floor arches symbolise the battle of May 21, 1821 that earned the city the title of "Heroic" because of the brave resistance of the Cordoba royalist forces during the independence war. In this building there are different government offices and inside I was surprised to see what is probably a work that immortalises the historical legacy of Cordoba, which was painted by a young artist who sat and very delicately painted a beautiful mural. In the mural we find important figures in the history of Cordoba. It was really fascinating to see its development, as the colours were incredible, like the style of the figures. I found it funny that the small animal figures on the walls or on the edges of windows are drawn with such realism that they can scare anyone who is clueless lol .... In one of the photos a Christmas mouse plays, but it is an optical illusion, but I love the detail and I hope you like it too = 0)
This beautiful building is located in Uxmal (ancient Mayan city and one of the most important with amazing archaeological Mayan culture). To this day it is said that it was occupied by the king of Uxmal before the Soothsayer built his palace. There was a chronicler, Fray Alonso Ponce who in 1558 said it was a building of rare magnificence and grandeur. One of the things I was told about this palace is that, although it seems divided into 3 separate parts, it is considered to be one. It no less than 98 m long and about 12 m wide and 8.5 m high. Where is its name from? Well, in the building's structure there's an incredible frieze (made with masks of the god Chaac) and sculptures with a central figure symbolizing a sovereign plume resting on a throne with a serpent's body and a design with 7 belts and serpentine heads (two-headed snakes). Many have identified this as Kukulcan sovereign, a high ranking man or God who they called the Governor's Palace. Uxmal is a sight to see, do not miss out. "Happiness is the reward of the brave"
This is the State Government Palace of the State of Tamaulipas, located in the heart of this beautiful city! People are friendly and hardworking. It is 3 hours from the Port of Tampico, and three and a half hours from H. Matamoros border city in the north of our country.
