National Palace


The National Palace (Spanish: Palacio Nacional) is the seat of the federal executive in Mexico. Since 2018 it has also served as the official residence for the President of Mexico. It is located on Mexico City's main square, the Plaza de la Constituci贸n (El Z贸calo). This site has been a palace for the ruling class of Mexico since the Aztec Empire, and much of the current palace's building materials are from the original one that belonged to the 16th-century leader Moctezuma II.

Used and classified as a government building, the National Palace, with its red tezontle facade, fills the entire east side of the Z贸calo, measuring over 200 metres (660聽ft) long. It is home to some of the offices of both the Federal Treasury and the National Archives.
