  • Three hundred years of Spanish rule in Mexico left many impressive monuments as a memento on that time. Churches, palaces, government buildings, all speak of the eye for elegance displayed by the governing classes of the country. The city of Querétaro, some four hours distant from Mexico City, is considered one of the most beautiful and complete colonial cities in Mexico. The illustration shows the entrance to a palace in Querétaro, which was built for the Marquise del Villar. Intricately carved stonework and a heavy oaken door with cast iron knockers in the shape of lion's heads, make of this entranceway a memorable landmark of the city.
