Palacio de los Capitanes Generales information

Lonely Planet review

Dating from 1558, the palace was the governmental center of all Central America, from Chiapas to Costa Rica, until 1773. The stately double-arcaded facade that anchors the south side of the plaza is all that remains of the old palace, recently under renovation. When the upgrade is complete, it is due to reopen as a cultural center.
