Our group booked a city tour, and this was one of the stops of that tour. We see bills posted everywhere for upcoming theatrical shows, artist exhibits and musical events. We were taken inside to marvel at the architectural design of the building. You should notice the design and sculpture in the outside as well...

I highly recommend you tour this lovely facility and if possible go to the opera. The artwork is fantastic and it has been restored to its peak glory.

If you enjoy seeing Beaux-Arts/Art Deco architecture, this is a fine example. A mix of styles, the marble and paned windows, gold-leaf accents, and metaled doors reflect back on a time when luxury meant timelessness. No need to see a performance here; the building is the star.

Concert hall is spectacular and its located downtown Mexico City. It is one the most elegant buildings ever built. There is also a museum in the top pd copula and some fantastic murals by painters like Rivera. Can´t miss it

I took to the city center an American and an Italian friend who happened to be visiting Mexico City the same week. After climbing up to floor 44 of la latinoamerican tower, Bellas Artes was a must! We enjoyed the murals, the building itself and the bookstore!

A beautiful historical building/museum/hall, there are different activities you can do, see an art exhibition, assist to an orchestra concert/national dances or just admire the architectural work

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.
