Postcard from Campeche, Mexico: Are any two cornices alike?

The streets of the historic center of Campeche resemble ribbon-like rainbows, with lines of colorful houses directly abutting the sidewalks and one another. Although most structures are a single story or two high, their height is increased because interior ceilings soar at least 16 feet upward to keep warmer air hovering above.

Strolls are not boring because of the varying shades of stucco and the amazing number of distinctive patterns embellishing soffits and cornices. If any two facades sport the exact same ornamentation, we failed to spot the pair.

    Campeche is a place that I have never traveled to but now, seeing these photos, I would like to do so. I travel to see architecture and gardens. It appears this would hit those two buttons.
