Córdoba

When visiting Córdoba, don’t forget to go to the Zevallos Portal in the Historic Center. It’s a place of great relevance for our country, since the “Córdoba treaties”, which gave way to the heroic deed of Mexico Independence, were signed there.

Formerly it was the Palacio de los Condes de Zevallos and, until 1973, host travelers who went from the capital to the port of Veracruz. Today, the red colonial-style building houses a Veracruz cuisine restaurant called “El Balcón de Zevallos”.

Córdoba City Hall is in a dazzling neoclassical construction with a Florentine Tuscan style and French influence. The building, erected during the Porfirian era, supplanted the old royal houses.

Historical data indicate that its 21 arches symbolize the May 21, 1821 Battle of the Defense of Córdoba. Inside, the municipal archive is custody. They claim that it is one of Mexican Republic's best preserved.

Another building you should visit is Pedro Díaz Theater, whose construction started in Maximiliano’s time but was suspended a year later, when the empire fell. The construction was restarted some time later thanks to a businessman's support—giving his name to the theater—who requested a 100-year concession for his benefit.

The incredible requirement was fulfilled and more than a hundred years after its opening, the theater’s name remains the same. Today you can enjoy concerts, dance performances, plays, book presentations or cultural festivals. You’ll find it a few steps from the Córdoba City Hall.
