Iturbide Palace

Désolé, cet article est seulement disponible en Anglais Américain, Espagnol Mexicain et 中文.

IturbidePopularly known as the "Palacio de Iturbide," the palace was built by architect Francisco Guerrero y Torres in 1782. It was built as a dowry given by the Marquis of Jaral de Berrio to his daughter at her marriage to the Marquis de Villafont. With Mexican Independence, the palace was occupied by Agustín de Iturbide and his family. Troops arrived to the building to cheer him as emperor, and thus began the First Mexican Empire. The elegant façade is one of the best examples of "civil Baroque" architecture in Mexico City. The two atlantes placed over the high gate stand out. The majestic courtyard is formed by arcades supported by slender columns, influenced by the courtyard of the Royal Palace of Palermo, in Italy. The palace is currently a cultural precinct dedicated to important temporary exhibitions and called the Palacio de Cultura CitiBanamex.
