We came to visit on our way to the El Chepe train and it's a beautiful historic building. Def a must see on a sightseeing tour, or just have extra time to look around the town, as we did.

The Palacio is worth a short visit mainly to see the coutyard. Interesting and well maintained. Nothing to write home about.

This was a High School, once and only later became the Municipal Palace. The building has been restored to its present state and presents itself very beautifully. Worth while visiting when in town.

This is an impressive building which complements the main plaza. Its worth a wander through to view the expansive central courtyard.

A large building containing government offices. Interesting architecture and quite well maintained. Large central courtyard and fountain. Interesting mural on one wall depicting some of the history of the area. Worth a visit if you have the time.

Nice colonial building. There's a detailed mural if you go up to the second level. Bathrooms are available here.
