This is one of the most beautiful and best-preserved buildings in the city.

The Municipal Palace was built to house the city council in 1608, although it was readapted during the 18th century.

The facade features semicircular arches. The first floor is a portico, and on the second floor, you can see a large balcony.

The tower was completed in 1786, and the first public clock in Veracruz was installed there. This beautiful tower, located on the corner of the complex, is said to have been used as a watchtower to spot ships arriving at the port.

The building has witnessed significant historical events. In 1862, it was occupied by French troops, in 1914 by American soldiers, and after that, it was abandoned until 1934 when it was restored and became the City Hall.

It has a magnificent interior courtyard surrounded by spacious corridors with large arches. All the staircases are made of marble, and one of them features a magnificent work by artist Víctor Ángel Vila Rosas—a mural made of tiles depicting the conquest.
