We visited the Obispado with family and friends. It's a great sightseeing place. You can drive up the mountain and it has a really great view of the whole city.

We got the afternoon off to see some sights so we headed to the Mirador and the Museo del Obispado.

The building harkens back to the days of Mexico's war with the French. Originally a Catholic place of worship at the top of the highest hill in Monterrey it became a prime spot to take over as a Military Fort for the Mexican army due to the strategically well placed buildings that oversee the entire city.

Now long after those incarnations the buildings have been transformed into a small but well curated museum. The architecture is stunning and the brightly painted walls add a beautiful touch.

Highly recommended

The best museum in the whole state to learn the history of "Los regios ". It's an old church that was used in several battles as a strategic forth. In the upper part of " El cerro del obispado" you can appreciate Mexican Flag and its evolution, at night you can get astonished by the view of the city's lights.
