Merida Palacio Municipal (City Hall) - Historical Building Merida - Mexico

Facing the cathedral, Mérida’s city hall was built on the site of a Mayan pyramid called Bakluum-Chaam. Erected in 1735, the current façade was added in 1928. The clock tower displays the coat of arms of Mérida, granted by King Phillip III of Spain in 1618 and displaying a banner reading, “Very Noble and Very Loyal City of Mérida.” On Monday nights, Yucatecan folkloric groups perform the jarana, a lively regional folk dance on the street in front of City Hall.
