Palacio La Embajada
San Luis Potosí was, in due course, the second most important city of the New Spain and it left tangible evidence of palaces and mansions that bear witness to those times of dresses decorated with pearls in a predominantly French environment.
After the Independence War, this area was appointed headquarters for Benito Juarez’s government and it was here, as well, where Francisco I. Madero created the San Luis Potosí Plan in 1910, allowing with it the possibility for the Mexican Revolution.
When the village of San Luis Potosí was designated as a City, the opulence and the European style architectural beauty became the norm in the lives of local inhabitants. This place turned into an important distributor of imported luxury merchandises since, due to its location, served as a land route of communication towards the north and towards the Gulf of Mexico. This fact favored that this city could be regarded as a synonym of cultural grandeur, wealth and unparalleled architecture that has lasted until our days.
