You can visit an authentic building, where you can see where the Governor works, but also, the Murals by Orozco are incredible. If you visit downtown Guadalajara DO NOT MISS THIS PLACE.

We did not have the time to go inside, but it is a lovely building to walk past for certain. Too much to do in this great city to see it all in the two days we were there.

After 9:00 A.M. you can enter the building and view the historic murals as well as the Congress Hall. Worth it to take a few minutes to explore.
