Construction on the domed palace begun in 1905, using art nouveau and neoclassical architectural styles, but was it delayed by sinking foundations and a political uprising.

  • I'm not an art lover, but the works inside were colorful and intriguing, especially Diego Rivera. Plus, I was treated to a rehearsal for an evening concert, which was fabulous.

  • 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
