 Plaza de ArmasEsta es la plaza principal de la ciudad, donde convergen las sedes de los poderes Ejecutivo y Legislativo del Estado, el Ayuntamiento de la Capital, la Catedral y el comercio en torno a un bello jardín sombreado. Ha tenido varios nombres: Plaza Mayor, Plaza de la Constitución, Plaza de Armas y Jardín Hidalgo. Durante el siglo XX se instalaron en su centro diversos monumentos: una columna dórica del arquitecto celayense Francisco Eduardo Tresguerras para conmemorar la victoria de las tropas mexicanas contra las españolas en San Juan de Ulúa y el monumento en bronce a Miguel Hidalgo, obra de Patiño Ixtolinque, más tarde transladado a la Alameda. Actualmente existe un quiosco de cantería con planta octagonal que ostenta en cada uno de sus lados el nombre de reconocidos músicos mexicanos y que es sede de la Banda del Estado. Palacio MunicipalEn este lugar estuvieron las primeras Casas Reales, sede de la Alcaldía Mayor de San Luis Potosí. Más tarde, el edificdo se consolidó para albergar al mismo tiempo la cárcel y estancos reales. En el siglo XIX fue adquirido para convertirlo



enel Parián. Se transformó en un edificio neoclásico de dos niveles con grandes arcadas hacia la plaza. Más tarde fue sede de la Lonja y posteriormente el Obispo Montes de Oca lo convirtió en Palacio Episcopal, tras embellecerlo y convertirlo en un palacio estilo neorenacentista. En 1915 el Ayuntamiento revolucionario lo recuperó y ocupó como Paladio Municipa. English:Arms SquareThis is the main plaza in the city, where the seats of the Executive and Legislative powers of the State, the City Council of the Capital, the Cathedral and business converge in a beautiful shaded garden environment. The plaza has had different names, such as Main Square, Constitution Square, Arms Square and Hidalgo Garden. During the 19th century, different monuments were built, such as: a Doric column by the Celaya-born architect Francisco Eduardo Tresguerras to commemorate the victory of the Mexican troops against the Spaniards in San Juan de Ulúa, and the bronze monument of Miguel Hidalgo by Patiño Ixtolinque, later moved to the Alameda. There is currently a
stone-worked octagonal kiosk, the headquarters of the State Band, displaying the names of well-known Mexican musicians. City HallThis is where the first Royal Houses were, being the headquarters of the Mayor of San Luis Potosí. Later, the building was consolidated to house both the



prison and the royal tobacconists. In the 19th century it was acquired to be converted into the Parián (market). It was transformed into a neo-classical two-story building with large arcades looking out toward the plaza. Later it was the market site, before the Bishop Montes de Oca converted it into the Episcopal Palace, after renovating it and converting it into a neo-renaissance-style palace. In 1915 the Revolutionary City Council recovered the building and used it as the Municipal Palace.
