Palacio De Gobierno - Historical Building Guadalajara - Mexico

The fire-and-brimstone visions of hell on earth painted by Mexican muralist José Clemente Orozco are why visitors duck into the Palacio de Gobierno (seat of the Jalisco state government) and head to the stairs. There, whipping up an inferno of frenzy, is Miguel Hidalgo, the Catholic priest who issued the rallying cry for Mexican independence in 1810. This is no straightforward portrait, however, and the idolized mega priest is surrounded by Nazis and other wretches. More Orozco murals are in the congressional chamber; check out the palace's circa-1774 Baroque façade, too.
