Hi there my Steemian friends and followers!
Almost exactly one year ago, in early January 2019, I visited the beautiful Mexican city of Campeche.
Officially known as San Francisco de Campeche, the Campeche City is the largest and capital city of the Mexican state of Campeche. Located on the coast of the Gulf of Mexico in the southwestern part of the Yucatan Peninsula, the city is currently home to some 220,000 people who refer to themselves as Campechanos.
Founded in 1540 by Spanish colonialists, the city was built on the site of what used to be the ancient Mayan city of Can Pech. A significant part of the old buildings built by the Spaniards in the 16th and 17th century is still well preserved, giving the city its characteristic colonial atmosphere and the unique historic feel.
I have already published a few posts dedicated to the picturesque and remarkably colorful architecture of Campeche, such as this and this article. However, just like many other cities in Latin America, Campeche is also home to a number of impressive street art pieces. I wish I paid more attention to them too as I was mostly focused on the traditional architecture while roaming around the streets and unfortunately, I ended up taking just 2 photos of local graffiti. Let me share the pictures with you now.
As far as I remember, I took both of them in the center of the city, probably not far from the Campeche Cathedral, the dominant landmark and most important religious building in the city.
Also, if you are a fan of street art, you might like some of my previous graffiti posts such as:
