CAMPECHE

The Old City of Campeche is a remarkable museum piece of the colonial era. Cobbled streets of aged houses painted in delicate blues, greens, and ochers still sit within the city walls, which were built to fend off pirate attacks when this was one of the great trading strongholds of the Spanish empire. Campeche’s actual museum, housed in an old fortress, displays spectacular Mayan relics from the excavated forest city of Calakmul.
