Plaza de la IndependenciaEn 1540 al ser fundada la villa de San Francisco de Campeche, se habilitó este espacio que fungiría como Plaza de Armas, siguiendo los patrones coloniales de la época. En torno a ella se fueron construyendo los edificios más sobresalientes como la Iglesia parroquial, la Aduana, el Principal, el Cabildo. Así como las casas-habitación de los vecinos más importantes de la villa. A partir de 1821 se le dio el nombre de Plaza de la Independencia. Entre 1979 y 1985 fue remodelada, se le añadió el quiosco y se enrejó, así como accesos en cada esquina y en el centro de cada lado que lo flanquea. Estos están compuestos por pilares con relieves geométricos y jarrones como remate.

In 1821, it was given the name of Independence Square. Between 1979 and 1985 it was remodeled and gated and the kiosk was added, along with the entrances at
each corner and in the center of each surrounding side. The entrances are composed of pillars in geometric relief crowned with vases.
