The walled city of San Francisco de Campeche, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, owes its origins and vast development to the commercial exportation of salt and wood, made possible by the favorable position of its port. This was also the reason why forts were built along the ocean shore to ward off the many attacks from European pirates during the 17th century.
Today, this city proudly showcases its recently restored port and colonial style architecture. Campeche is commonly used as an intermediate point to reach other locations in the Yucatan peninsula, especially archaeological areas, and therefore it’s not often considered one of the most important destinations in the area. However, this city has a surprising appeal of its own, and it’s great to stay and observe the historic architecture and landscapes while enjoying the exotic weather and popular festivities.
