Palacio de Gobierno

Notable Building in Morelia

This 18th-century palace, originally a seminary and now housing Michoacán state government offices, has a simple baroque facade. Its soaring historical murals (1962) in the stairwell and 2nd-floor hallways are the magnum opus of Pátzcuaro-born artist Alfredo Zalce (1908–2003), and arguably the city's best. Enter from Calle Juárez.
