Plaza de ArmasConstruida alrededor de 1550, esta plaza es el corazón de la vida cotidiana en Querétaro. En el siglo XVIII, alrededor de su perímetro se construyeron casonas monumentales donde residió el poder político y social de la ciudad (españoles y criollos, principalmente). A la izquierda de la Casa del Corregimiento, la plaza se conecta con el andador 5 de Mayo. Durante la época virreinal, este pasaje solía ser una de las zonas más transitadas de la ciudad.Casa del CorregimientoDurante el siglo XVIII, esta construcción (viendo de frente a la plaza) fue Casa Real
y cárcel. Aquí vivió doña Josefa Ortiz de Domínguez, quien junto a su esposo, el corregidor Miguel Domínguez, utilizaron el espacio para organizar reuniones sociales y ponerse en contacto con los
simpatizadores de la Independencia Nacional, entre ellos el cura Miguel Hidalgo, quien dio inicio a la lucha de
Independencia el 15 de septiembre de 1810. Hoy este edificio es sede del gobierno estatal y alberga varios murales con escenas de la historia mexicana, obras del maestro Francisco Cauduro.
Casa de EcalaConstruida entre 1780 y 1785, esta construcción es un excepcional ejemplo
del barroco en Querétaro. En su fachada de cantera destacan tres bellos balcones con sofisticados barandales de herrería adornados



con figuras de aves y garigoles. Se encuentra a la izquierda de la plaza.
Mesón de Santa RosaSus orígenes se remontan al siglo XVII y ha sido considerado el primer mesón de la ciudad. Por aquí solían pasar comerciantes y viajeros en su camino hacia la Sierra Gorda y los yacimientos de plata del Camino Real de Tierra Adentro, ruta clave para el comercio y el transporte en la
Nueva España.

Plaza de ArmasWas built around 1550 and since then it has been the heart of life in Querétaro.
In the 18th century, around its perimeter were built monumental houses where the politically and socially powerful of the city (mainly Spanish and their descendants) resided. To the left of the Casa del Corregimiento (City Hall), the square connects with the 5 de Mayo walkway. During the colonial period, this passage
was one of the most traveled and splendid areas of the city.
Casa del Corregimiento(City Hall)During the 18th century, this mansion (facing the plaza) was the Casa Real (Royal House) and jail. Here lived Doña Josefa Ortiz de Domínguez, where she gave notice to the revolutionary Miguel Hidalgo to begin the struggle for independence on September 15, 1810. Today it is the State Government Palace and houses several murals of Francisco Cauduro with historical scenes of Mexico. Casa
