Palacio Municipal (City Hall)

Tehuacán

Built in the XIX century, this property was known as “La Casa de los Altos”, because at that time this was the only two-level house in the whole city of Tehuacán. The owner was José Domingo Rodríguez de Apresa.

Some years later, the house was confiscated by the church when it was known that it was bought using tithes. It was originally given to The Franciscan community, however, they decided not to use it. Years later it was offered to the Government but they couldn't take care of it, so it remained abandoned.

Time after that, the Municipality sold its old town hall –this was possible thanks to the Lerdo Law– and with the money obtained they started the rescue of “La Casa de los Altos”. They gave new life to this house and ultimately it became the new Municipal Palace.

Inside this Moorish style building you will find a mural painting that describes the history of the town named “The 5 Regions of Tehuacán” Take a close look at this painting, it covers a space from top to bottom, arches included. You will also find another one that honors one of the most popular personalities of Tehuacán and that is named “A New World”.

Finally, the clock that rounds up the whole building was the idea of Mexican Ex-President Porfirio Diaz.
