Create an itinerary including Chapultepec Castle
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.

  • Beautiful castle in the park. The grounds are well kept and while the rooms are corded off, you can see all the furnishings. Price of admission is affordable. Long up-sloping hike to get to the...

  • This is a beautiful, well maintained monument to history. This building is very well persevered along with a lot of elements from its past days. You can see into various rooms and learn about the lifestyles of the then-elite (while acknowledging the role it played to Mexican history. The view from the top is great, but get ready to walk a bit! I went on a Friday and there was an impressive queue already there, but thankfully, it moved rather quickly.
  • I would say it was a nice building, the signs had some interesting history and the pieces of the house you could see were nice. Really crowded, worth the price but wasn’t a 5/5. With the time I had I would put that towards the lower half of my need to see in CDMX list. But, don’t get me wrong. Strong and quick trip. You do walk up about 1/4 of a mile of path then a few stairs to get there, I charged through and saw everything I wanted to in 45 min.
