Palacio de Bellas Artes is very close to the central plaza. When you take a walk, you must pass here and make some stunning pics!

We coordinated our visit to Mexico DF to coincide with the presentation of the reknowned MEXICAN DANCE show (sorry, I do not remember the exact name). This was a show to remember (if not the name) as it took us through the many dances and music of Mexico! Very well done!! A must visit while in DF.

This building has a unique style--an ornate rococo exterior with an impressive art deco interior featuring large murals by Diego Rivera and other artists of his time. There is a modest fee to visit the three floor atrium lobby to view the murals and an additional fee to visit the concert hall if it is available for viewing (which it... More

One of the best buildings in Mexico. I actually visited 3 times to take more photos. Make sure you go there when there is blue sky as you will be able to take great photos.

I'm a fan of history and magnificent structures, however not a fan of Diego Rivera. I gave it a 5 because it wouldn't be fair to rate it based on my distaste. NOTE* All museums in Mexico have a fee for camera use.

The monumental marble building used to stand out with a large staircase to enter the main hall. However, due to the sinking of the city, the building is now bellow the street level, but still stands out for its magnificence. Inside, it holds the paintings from Mexican muralist, temporary exhibits and many events, such as the Mexican folklore ballet, the... More

Every seat is a good seat. The architecture of this incredible structure is amazing. My mother is in a wheel chair and the theatre attendants guide us thru the back entrance to... More

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.
