A beautiful parliament building inside and out. There is a very worthwhile tour for 140 pesos for tourists and free for locals. The building was built with beautiful local marble from local and Italian architects and craftsmen, it took 17 years to finish. Inside the most impressive hall, you will find the constitution and the declaration of independence. Our guide in English was with Mario and he was an amazing tour guide.
Beautiful Building. Nice pictures on both sides . Nearby there is a wall painting that is nice as well.
