Plaza de Armas (Independence Square) is older—it was built in the 18th Century, and is surrounded by beautiful colonial buildings. Its fountain has a large statue in the center, and a dog at each corner on the base. The water comes out of the dogs’ mouths.
The Casa de la Corregidor (Governor’s Palace) is across the street. It is now the seat of state government (the city of Querétaro is the capital of the state of Querétaro.) There was always a guard in the doorway, but one day I asked if it was open to the public. Limited areas were, and I was able to go into a stunningly beautiful courtyard. What an office environment that would be!
