Neat place for quick visit

They are remodeling the original stores on the street level, they are all closed and inaccessible. You need to go inside and go to floor 2 to see the few stores they have open now. Not really worth visiting until they reopen the original stores.

Definitely worth a visit! located just off 5 de Mayo next to the cathedral, this building has as much history as some of the other sights around the square. And an English speaking guide took us through the building as a free service even refusing a tip. (unheard of in Mexico).
