A WALLED CITY FULL OF SURPRISES

The Walled City is a cultural heritage site inscribed in 1999 on the World Heritage List.

Campeche is the capital of the state of the same name, located on the Yucatán Peninsula on the shores of the Gulf of Mexico. It is a fortified city, famous for being one of the few walled cities in the Americas that preserves its towers, bastions, and walls built for protection against pirates during the colonial era in excellent condition.

By 1517, the first Spanish explorers landed in the Mayan village of Can-Pech or Ah Kin Pech, which meant "Place of the Lord Sun Tick" in Mayan, and they named it San Lázaro. However, it wasn't until 1540 that Francisco de Montejo, the Younger, established the city.

Throughout the colonial period, it became a strategic port for New Spain, exporting products such as beeswax, dye wood, honey, salt, corn, and cotton blankets, among others.

Precisely because of its location and the wealth of its commercial exchange, it became a center for constant pirate attacks, with notable figures such as Laurent Graff or "Lorencillo," Francis Drake, Henry Morgan, and Jean Lafitte.

Campeche

Campeche's fortification system is an outstanding example of military architecture from the 17th and 18th centuries. The hexagonal wall measured 2,720 meters in perimeter and consisted of eight bastions and four gates. Currently, you can admire parts of its wall, two of its gates, and seven bastions.

Inside its walls, an imposing city was built with grid-like streets, beautiful temples, squares, and elegant mansions.

When you visit, you can explore all the attractions of the capital aboard one of the replicas of the old vehicles: "El Guapo" and the "City Tram."

You can walk along the famous Calle 59, which stretches from the Puerta de la Tierra to the Puerta del Mar. It is one of the most attractive streets in the city, and along the way, you can enjoy some of the most representative buildings, galleries, and restaurants.

Campeche offers natural beauty, beaches, exotic cuisine, beautiful landscapes, but its main attraction is its people, who possess a rich cultural heritage and have preserved their customs and traditions.

Campeche is famous for its unique cuisine based on fish and seafood.

The climate is warm sub-humid with summer rains. The average annual temperature is 26.8ºC.
