Alhondiga Square (Plaza de la Alhóndiga)

Open - Limited Services / Capacity

You may say that this square has a dual function. It is a unique space where commercial life and the past come together. In the morning it serves as a center for selling beauty products, while at night it becomes a meeting place for neighbors.

From its esplanade, you can still observe the buildings of past centuries that tell scenes of the Revolution, but the space has been cared for and transformed into a hub of coexistence and dialogue.

Facing this square is the building called the Archbishopric, established in the 16th century. A shield is carved into the gate with the keys of St. Peter under a strip. This square was declared a historical monument in 1931, restored in 1936 and today it depends on the INAH.
