The stained-glass pieces within the Banquets Hall represent the 10 virtues that, in Jorge Ubico’s eyes, a good Government should have, bundled in pairs:
Progress-Peace; Work- Freedom; Justice – Integrity; Union-Order; Education- Resilience.
The governor made sure that he left his mark in history with each detail found all over the National Palace of Culture. Although he left the presidency a couple of months after the inauguration of the building, this is still one of the most representative architectural wonders of his time.
Thank you for visiting the National Palace of Culture!
