Casa del gobernador
La casa del castellano o casa del gobernador es una de las edificaciones más importantes de San Juan de Ulúa pues, durante la época virreinal era la residencia de la autoridad encargada del fuerte y de la ciudad de Veracruz. La planta baja estaba conformada por cuatro bóvedas "a prueba de bomba" que servían como almacenes y refugio para la élite de la fortaleza en caso de ataque. La planta alta se terminó a fines del siglo XIX.Durante la Guerra de Reforma (1857-1861), Benito Juárez se instaló en esta casa y estableció aquí su sede de gobierno. En 1915, Venustiano Carranza suprimió la cárcel de San Juan de Ulúa, declaró la casa del gobernador residencia presidencial y se instaló, junto con su gabinete, en este sitio.
Actualmente, en la planta baja de la casa hay una sala de exposiciones temporales y, en el piso superior, se encuentra una sala de sitio que explica la historia del Fuerte de San Juan de Ulúa desde la época prehispánica hasta el siglo XVIII. English translation:
The Governor's House

The House of the Castilian or the Governor's House is one of the most important buildings of San Juan de Ulúa because during the viceroyal era it was the residence of the authority in charge of the fort and the city of Veracruz. The
ground floor consisted of four "bomb-proof" vaults that served as warehouses and shelter for the fort's elite in case of attack. The second floor was completed at the end of the 19th century. During the Reform War (1857-1861), Benito Juárez settled in this house and established his seat of government here. In 1915, Venustiano Carranza closed the prison of San Juan de Ulúa, declared the Governor´s House as the presidential residence and settled, together with his cabinet, in this place. Currently, on the ground floor of the house there is a temporary exhibition hall and, on the upper floor, there is a room that explains the history of the Fort of San Juan de Ulúa from pre-hispanic times to the eighteenth century.
