We came to visit on our way to the El Chepe train and it's a beautiful historic building. Def a must see on a sightseeing tour, or just have extra time to look around the town, as we did.

When we were in El Fuerte there were paid and free concerts on the patio of the palacio. It was good fun to see the locals enjoy some truly Mexican music.

This was a High School, once and only later became the Municipal Palace. The building has been restored to its present state and presents itself very beautifully. Worth while visiting when in town.

This is an impressive building which complements the main plaza. Its worth a wander through to view the expansive central courtyard.

Worth seeing because there isn't much else in the town, but nothing too special. The area is nice to walk around and the square across the street is very nice.

A large building containing government offices. Interesting architecture and quite well maintained. Large central courtyard and fountain. Interesting mural on one wall depicting some of the history of the area. Worth a visit if you have the time.

Nice colonial building. There's a detailed mural if you go up to the second level. Bathrooms are available here.
