    This was one of the most memorable experience in my visit to Mexico City. We visited the Palacio de Bellas Artes during the weekend and saw a Ballet Folklorico de México show. It was a very emotional performance and the venue completely immersed you. The building’s architecture is stunning. The shows are almost always sold out, so you should either purchase your tickets in advance or arrive at least two hours before the show.

    A must visit if you are in Mexico City. The architecture is beautiful and if you can go to the sears cafe across the street, I would definitely recommend that. The view of the palacio from the sears cafe is unreal. Go here while the sun is setting for an even better experience

    Absolutely exquisite! I feel the Mexican culture has such a richness and vibrancy to it. You can see it in their art. The vast murals capture the past, the history, the struggle, the temples, the gods. It weaves all of life together in depth and beauty!

    The museum has some really cool murals. That alone was worth seeing. Especially on Sunday because admission was free. And who doesn't love free! But to be honest. The rest of the pieces they displayed was kinda meh! Of course art is in the eye of the beholder. So take that with a grain of salt. So it loses a star for the art. But it loses another star for the security. I have toured an Aircraft carrier and a prison. Both had less security. Literally there was a guard every ten feet. Barking directives at visitors as they walked by. It was quite unsettling. I spent more time worrying I was standing in the wrong place than enjoying the art.

    Beautiful! A must see… go into Sears … yes I said Sears across the street from the front of the building, take the elevator to the 8th floor and there is a cafe that overlooks the building. I took the picture from there. China town is a 2 minute walk from here, also the post office famous for its architecture is 2 minutes too. Alameda park is work a stroll through as well
