I have never been to Europe so I have not much to compare this majestic building to. I think is impressive. What elegance. The murals there Orozco and Siqueiros are a must see. I am no great art connoisseur but you do not need to be to feel the bravery of Siqueiros murals. They exude grit and courage I love... More

Am I in Paris? People may disagree, but at least for me, Palacio de Bellas Artes is perhaps Mexico City's most beautiful building inside and out! Because its construction faced some interruptions, Bellas Artes was completed as a chimera of various architectural styles including Neoclassical to Art Deco, and the result is this uniquely beautiful wonder that can parallel with...

Gorgeous building, Seeing the Diego Rivera mural is worth the price of admission. We had a good lunch in the cafe as well.

Go and see the Folk Lorico dancing in this beautiful old building - one of the best in Mexico City. The exterior and interior are amazing. The dancing and music is professionally presented and well worth it.

We attended a Ballet Folkloric de Mexico at this theatre and it was a fabulous experience. The building is majestic inside and out, and the performance was fantastic. You will enjoy this place.

We have visited "El Palacio" many times recently, to see the Folkloric Mexican Ballet and an exposition of Toulouse Lautrec. In both cases the experience was great. It is worth visiting the bookstore, it does have a good variety of art books.

I love this beautiful artwork and architecture building. Porfirio Diaz decided to replace the previous National Theatre in 1901.The Italien architect Adamo Boari started the project 1904 and it was planed to finish it in 1910, however for the Mexican Revolution it was finally inaugurated in 1934 after the work of the Mexican architect Francisco Mariscal. The domes are made... More

If you love artwork, then immerse yourself in several different styles portrayed by the Mexican artists. They also had a unique architectural exhibit.

Staying in Alameda

Neighbourhood Profile
Alameda
This beautiful park was once the playground for the wealthiest families in the colonial era, and is now the perfect place where locals and visitors can spend a sunny weekend afternoon to relax or shop for souvenirs at the market. Kids can run around or grab a bite of cotton candy while teens and adults wander around admiring the charming gardens and the sculptures that adorn it. Once the heat rises, it may be time to visit one of the many cozy restaurants or cafés with its characteristic art nouveau facades to cool down and call it a day.
