 Palacio de GobiernoFue construido a finales del siglo XVIII por orden del Visitador José de Gálvez en sustitución de las Casas Reales que fueron destruidas por los "tumultos" resultado
de la expulsión de los Jesuitas de la ciudad en 1767. Se inició la construcción a partir del diseño neoclásico del ingeniero militar Miguel Constanzó en 1798, lográndose concluir hasta 1827. A partir de 1824 fue sede del Gobierno del Estado, Ayuntamiento, el Supremo Tribunal de Justicia y la Legislatura. El 16 de septiembre de 1910 se inauguró el reloj en su fachada. En 1966 el edificio fue ampliado por los arquitectos Cossío y Algara para ocupar la totalidad de la manzana. Casa de la VirreinaUbicada al norte de la Plaza de Armas. Esta casa perteneció al alférez don Manuel de la Gándara, tío de doña Francisca de la Gándara, virreina de la Nueva España por su matrimonio con el brigadier don Félix María Calleja del Rey. Aunque la casa fue alterada, conserva la estructura original del patio, con sus arcadas y escaleras. English:Government PalaceThis
