The second most important square in downtown Mexico City, Santo Domingo Plaza is the home to: Public Scribes; the Temple of the Dominican Order dating back to the 17th century; and the Palace of the Inquisition, which has been turned into the Museum of Medicine outlining the history of this science in Mexico.
Doña Josefa Ortiz de Dominguez – also known as the Corregidora - a participant in the Mexican Independence movement is honored in this plaza with a statue. The highlight of this visit are the murals housed in the Public Education Ministry. Diego Rivera painted these memorable frescos between 1923 and 1928 which include several series commemorating the Mexican Revolution, Mexican Workers, and Mexican Holidays. These are a “must see” for Diego fans.
