Explore the only castle in North America to be inhabited by a reigning monarch at Chapultepec Castle. Perched atop a sacred Aztec hill at 2,325 m (7,628 ft) above sea level, the castle was first constructed in 1775 as the stately residence of a Spanish colonial figure, but it has served many functions under a handful of different rulers during its storied history. Today you can take a historical tour through the building, which also houses an anthropology museum. Afterward, take a few moments to appreciate the views over the capital city from atop the hill. Make your Mexico City itinerary with Inspirock to find out what to see and where to go.

Chapultepec Castle reviews
Totally worth the 80 pesos to get in....its a long walk up a path to this very cool castle that has rooms full of art and historic artifacts; All in Spanish, though. Great views of the city and park..... more »
I’m not sure why you would be visiting the bosque (at least the first time) and not be headed here, but just know that it’s worth it. If not necessarily for the castle itself, then absolutely for the.... more »
Beautiful views and fantastic history museum. The museum interpretation is mostly in Spanish but the palace is beautiful and worth the long but not steep walk up the hill. The views alone are worth it. Note that the palace is divided into three not connected sections each with its own staircase so you may have to hunt around to get to each top floor. The farthest one has the little tower and a gorgeous garden. Don’t miss the massive mural room.
Gorgeous castle. Loved the exhibits in English about the different rooms and what they were used for. Wished more of it was in English though. Loved the garden on the roof. Loved the view of the city from the back of the castle. Definitely worth checking out if you're into castles.
