  • Zocalo North, nine blocks away, it takes about 20 minutes on foot. It is also said to be the Yucatan Museum of History and Ethnography and the Yucatan Museum of Anthropology. It is said the Canton Palace because it is the one that the state governor's residence and the General mansion were renovated. The architecture is as you'd expect, and it's a museum look. The palace correctly. Introspection passed.
