"El Penal de Allende"
Veracruz, Ver.

The high security prison El Penal de Allende was considered a vast improvement over the federal prison of San Juan de Ulua.

Built under the supervision of Don Domingo Bureau and the jail occupies a square block and is still in use today as the main prison, and office of the District Attorney (Ministerio Publico) for the Port of Veracruz.
