Description
Formerly this building was the government palace, it presents characteristics of the Renaissance based on the Doric classic order and its facade is oriented towards the central square or Zócalo of the city.

This mural represents three epochs; the pre-Hispanic era is expressed in the left wall, reflecting the customs and the type of life of the Mixtecs, Zapotecs and Mexicas; on the right wall passages from the time of the Conquest; finally, in the central wall, the independent period. In the latter, José María Morelos y Pavón is represented with the printing press and making the first newspaper in Oaxaca called “El Correo del Sur”. Other characters appear, such as: Benito Juárez, Margarita Maza, José María Morelos and Ricardo Flores Magón.

Curious fact
The interior murals on the stairs were painted by Arturo García Bustos in 1980.
