The formidable compound now known as ‘The Citadel’ started off as a tobacco factory in the late 18th century, though it’s best known as the scene of the Decena Trágica (Tragic Ten Days), the coup that brought down the Madero government in 1913. Today it is home to the Biblioteca de México José Vasconcelos , with holdings of over 500,000 volumes and an extensive maps collection. The central halls are given over to art exhibits.
