Beyond iconic, this architectural confection of art nouveau and art deco is a must-see in CDMX. It is as beautiful outside as it is indoors. Equal parts performance hall, art gallery and museum, it... more »
The Palacio de Bellas Artes is beautiful, from the the garden hall to the architecture. There are massive art pieces in the gallery. Although the time I went did not have a big exhibit going on. But seeing the revolution pictures of Diego Rivera was an amazing experience. Pro tip, the ice cream sold outside are delicious. After spending time climbing the stairs, buy some cold sweets and relax in the garden.
Spectacular building with some of the best murals inside including the famous mural of Man controller of the universe. We arrived in city on Sunday morning and were lucky to get free admission inside. The best murals are on the second floor. There was a metro exhibition on the top floor but with descriptions in Spanish only. The building and surrounding areas are crowded most of the times.
