Palizada, Campeche

I am crazy about the history of pirates and so had to go to Palizada, a river settlement of low houses with the unusual characteristic of roofs with French tiles. These tiles tell about the town's past: buccaneers used them as ballast in their ships and traded them for trunks of logwood, a precious wood sold in Europe for use in making dyes.

How to Get There

Palizada, Campeche

From Campeche take Federal Highway 180 to Champoton. Continue using 261 to Escarcega and from there catch 186 towards Villarhermosa until the exit at 65 km., continuing to Palizada and passing through Jonuta. Distance chart: To Palenque - 128 km; To Campeche – 358 km; To Villahermosa – 151 km
