We had a great guide who was able to explain (in english) the history of the area and Mexico's battle for independence through the beautiful murals on the walls. We enjoyed the guide so much we brought our friends back to learn as well.

Now Government Palace or Chief Magistrates’ House (Casa de los Corregidores), it also served as the Royal prison until not so long ago (in the west wing), horse stable, military barracks, seat of executive power and finally cradle of national independence.

The place where Miguel Domínguez and his wife Josefa Ortiz, Ignacio Allende, Juan Aldama, Miguel Hidalgo, and others first met to conspire against the Crown, the harsh beginning of the Mexican War of Independence. The conspiracy was discovered, and things abruptly changed from there, but this is where the kernel, the seed of it began to germinate.

Today, visitors and locals can come to admire three beautiful murals, painted on fragile red travertine, illuminating and energizing the cold stern walls of the palace. They are the amazing work of artist Víctor Cauduro (inaugurated in 2012) to recount a part of Mexico’s history. Each mural, like a child in the womb, took nine months to paint.

Mural 1 – National Independence.
Mural 2 – Queretaro site and restoration of the republic.
Mural 3 – Revolution and constitution of 1917.

On the side of the Plaza de Independencia (Armas). We took an interesting 20 minute guided tour with Casandra, which was in Spanish only. The interior courtyard has 3 large very recently painted (2015?) murals from major persons in Mexican history. On the other side are government offices in the area which once housed a jail. You can still see the tiny cell windows as well as the separate male and female restraint areas for prisoners.

It is a Barco style historical building of the 18th century worth looking at, when strolling around, and visiting if you have the time.

We just went there and we had a short but good tour. What we love the most were the murals that had the principal character of important moments of Mexico's history such as the Independence, Revolution and the founding of Teotihuacan.

I never imagined that stepping foot into a building could evoke such strong emotions. You are stepping into history. You can feel it in the well preserved walls and bricks that adorn this palace. The guided tour is highly recommended, as anyone approaching you is not only incredibly friendly but just so genuinely interested in sharing with you the history of the country, and their passion shows in their words! Great place to catch a little bit of shade too for half an hour while getting away from the sun.

The place is of historical importance , now is a government building , it has 3 nice murals that totally white washed the Mexican independence Heroes. The bad part is that the tourist guides tell a conservative revisionist version of Mexico. As a Mexican historian all this make me really sad , the murals and the explanation wipe away very important information of my country. But Querétaro state is one of the conservativism bastions in Mexico. From here you can take a leyends tours or eat in one of the expensive yet delicious restaurants.
