 20. - Portal Matamoros (Ecce homo)El origen de los portales se remonta al seguimiento que los constructores del Siglo XVI dieron a las recomendaciones expresadas en Las Ordenanzas expedidas por Felipe II con respecto al trazado de las ciudades en Hispanoamérica. Una de las cuales mencionaba que: "Toda la plaza a la redonda, y las cuatro calles principales que de ella salen, tengan portales, porque son de mucha comodidad para tratantes que aquí suelen concurrir..."El portal es un espacio semipúblico que se localiza al frente de la planta baja de las edificaciones relevantes, que conforman el entorno edificado de las plazas o espacios abiertos de la zona central de una ciudad con valor patrimonial. Morelia no ha sido la excepción y sus portales albergan el tránsito de personas, sirven de extension de las actividades internas de cada uno de los inmuebles que los delimitan y contienen elementos importantes del mobiliario urbano.En la lucha por la independencia nacional se formaron los jefes del ejército. Gente de ocupaciones muy ajenas a la milicia, se improvisaron como oficiales y dirigentes militares



del naciente ejército libertador y tras descalabros y derrotas adquirieron la experiencia que los condujo a muy sonados triunfos sobre tropas disciplinadas. Uno de esos generales improvisados fue Don Mariano Matamoros, quien era cura de Jantetelco al iniciarse la revolución de Hidalgo. De gran valor, talento y audacia, este patriótico guerillero fue por varios años el segundo de Morelos; lugar conquistado por Don Mariano a base de una entrega absoluta a la causa insurgente. Fue precisamente en este sitio donde el ilustre patriota fue fusilado por el ejército realista el tres de febrero de 1814.El Portal Matamoros, antes Ecce Homo, está comprendido por cinco edificaciones de valor arquitectónico e histórico con usos mixtos que conforman un conjunto armonioso, a pesar de las diferencias formales entre ellas, destacándose los inmuebles que ocupan el Hotel Virrey de Mendoza, y el antiguo Cine Colonial.
English:20. - "Matamoros" Portal (Former Ecce Homo Portal)The origin of the portals goes back to the follow-up that 16th Century builders gave to the recommendations expressed in
The Ordinances ("Las Ordenanzas") issued by Phillip II regarding the outline of cities in Hispanic America, one of which mentioned that, "All of the plaza and its surroundings, and the four main streets arising from it, should
have portals,



because they are of much comfort for the dealers who usually concur here..."The portal is a semipublic space located at the front of the ground floor of the relevant buildings which conform the built setting of the plazas or open spaces of the central area of a city with patrimonial value. Morelia is not the exception and its portals house the traffic of people, serve as an extension for the internal activities of each of the plots of real estate that delimit them and contain important elements of urban furnishings.In the struggle for Mexican Independence, the heads of the army instructed themselves. People from occupations very different from the militia improvised themselves as officers and military heads of the rising liberator army, and after setbacks and defeats, they acquired the experience that led them to very significant triumphs over disciplined troops. One of these improvised generals was Don Mariano Matamoros, who was the parish priest of Jantelco when Hidalgo's revolution began. Of great courage, talent and audaciousness, this patriotic guerrilla head was during several years the second one after Morelos; which place was conquered by Don Mariano based on his absolute commitment to the Insurgent cause. It was precisely in this site that the illustrious patriot was shot by the royalist army on February third, 1814.The "Matamoros" Portal, previously



Ecce Homo, is comprised of five buildings of architectural and historical value with mixed uses, which conform a harmonious whole, despite the formal differences among them, and the plots of real estate occupied by the "Virrey de Mendoza" Hotel and the ancient Colonial Movie House are outstanding.
