Campeche by night: The whole city is a piece of history. In the streets the presence of those Spanish conquerors, pirates and invaders of the civil wars of the nineteenth century is sensed. The historic center is full of colonial buildings. Walking through it, you will vibrate with multicolor decorating their houses, some with Moorish and Spanish reminiscences of the eighteenth centuries. On one side of the main square is the beautiful cathedral with cattails Franciscan churches and beautiful baroque altarpieces are the living traces of Catholic evangelization in these lands.
Campeche became fully walled. Large and modest defenses of faith protected the population during offensive pirates. Do not miss the Fort of San Miguel, the cultural center of the 6th House, or the Sea Gate or the Gate of Earth, where you can start an interesting tour around the top of the wall and get to the Baluarte de San John, that gives you a great view of the city and its orderly street line.
