It was a short but fun drive to Campeche City the capital of the state.
This place has a very European feel especially inside the ancient stone city walls where the building are all painted bright colors. It is also famous for amazing seafood. There are ruins of a number of the forts that defended the city.
We visited the Fuerto San Miguel. Other nice sites included the lovely 17 th century Cathedral as well as a number of other churches in the city.
The remains of the old walls include the “Sea Gate” and the “Land Gate”. The waterfront has a 3 km long walking, running, biking path along the sea shore.
