In the center of Poza Rica we can visit the mural of the Municipal Palace and contemplate this new mosaic technique by Pablo O'Higgins with measures of 5 x 47 meters, in which pre-Hispanic agricultural works and the new oil era of the region are represented.
On one side of the palace, we can find the Municipal Library, the perfect setting to read a book under the shade of Parque Juárez.
Right in front of the municipal palace, we can find Juárez Park, one of the most popular places for tourism in Poza Rica due to the years it has been serving the population looking for a comfortable place to walk on weekends with the family.
It has fast food and snacks from the region in its surroundings and also on weekends you can entertain yourself with the afternoons of danzón and salsa.
