Paseo de Montejo is the name of a main road in the city of Mérida, Mexico, named after Francisco de Montejo, conqueror of Yucatán and founder of the capital city of Yucatán.

Numerous public and private institutions are located along its route and it is the main part of the Mérida tourist corridor.
The layout and design are inspired by that of the French boulevards, especially that of the Champs Elysees in Paris. Flanked by large trees, it has a median and numerous roundabouts.

The Palace was built on the same site where the old "Royal Houses" stood in colonial times, which housed the Yucatecan rulers as well as several of their main collaborators. Its location is at the intersection of two of the busiest streets in Mérida: 60 and 61.
The Palace project, as we see it today, was carried out in 1879 during the government of Mr. Manuel Romero Ancona, according to a design by the engineer Olegario G. Cantón.
The Palace, in an eclectic classicist style, covers a quadrangular surface of 42 meters in front and in the background. It consists of 2 floors adorned with portals and a beautiful quarry stone staircase. Inside, a large central patio stands out.
Its façade shows a replica of the bell of the church of the town of Dolores, which the priest Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla used to summon the people to a struggle that ended with the country's independence.
