Palace sights in Guadalajara
- Sort by:
The impressive Palacio de Gobierno, which houses state government offices, was finished in 1774. It’s a neo-classical building accented by more than a few Churrigueresque decorations and an enormous 1937 mural of Miguel Hidalgo looming over an interior stairway. Hidalgo brandishes a torch in one fist while the masses struggle at his feet. Another Orozco mural in the ex-Congreso (former Congress Hall) upstairs depicts Hidalgo, Benito Juárez and other historical luminaries.
