La Villa de San Francisco de Campeche had its commercial and port development in the sixteenth century and part of the XVII, which resulted in the constant siege of pirates and privateers who tried to plunder the riches of the town. Because of this it was decided to build a defensive system on the main points of the town to protect and at the same time safeguard the population.
With this, Campeche became the only fortified city of the New Spain in the seventeenth century splendor that can still be seen in the beautiful buildings that can be found in the city.
The rehabilitation of old buildings in the Historic Center, which since 1996 made by the Government showed a peculiar urban image that for many years went virtually unnoticed. This has also led to a reconsideration in historical research of the architecture of our city, promoting urban culture and tourism.
The enhancement of the historic center of Campeche is more than the rescue of Tangible Cultural Heritage. It has improved tourism in an area where hotels, restaurants, cafes, craft shops and other spaces that offer their services to visitors to make more pleasant their presence in this beautiful city are located.
The religious architecture of the town reflects the austere Franciscan spirit, whether construction of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries were at the mercy of pirates looting, a situation that discouraged any attempt to ostentation, worrying over the population and trade protect their assets by making reckless displays of piety.
Each property has an origin and a different story. Some are due to the charity of some wealthy neighbor, others to action in any civil or ecclesiastical authority or is the result of a combination of both initiatives. In several of the temples they are evident the construction phases and other surprises so profuse altarpieces contrasting with the simplicity of its factory. The safety of the walls made it possible, also, a refinement in the art of building them.
