This was my second time visiting this incredible city full of history. Before the pandemic started, CDMX was the las place I visited before lockdown. Now two years later, I managed to return to this incredible city. This city is full of cultural and fun things to do. There are so many museums, that one would not be able to visit them all!
Museo Mural Diego Rivera. The museum was built in 1986 as a space to exhibit Diego Rivera’s 1946–47 mural ‘Dream of a Sunday Afternoon in Alameda Park’. This mural was first hosted in the Hotel del Prado, which was severely damaged in the 1985 Mexico City earthquake.
In order to transport the mural from the hotel, the wall that supported it was removed; later, a metal structure was used to support its 15-ton weight, still preserved to the present. The museum’s building and its facilities were built around the mural, after it was placed at its current location. The museum was inaugurated on February 19, 1988.
The Palacio de Belas Artes is a beautiful and iconic building in the centre of CDMX. The Palacio de Bellas Artes has been called the “Cathedral of Art in Mexico”. It has hosted notable events in music, dance, theatre, opera and literature in Mexico and has held important exhibitions of painting, sculpture and photography. It an incredible building. The exterior of the building is primarily Art Nouveau and Neoclassical and the interior is primarily Art Deco.
El Zocalo Plaza is a famous square situated in the centre of Mexico City. This famous square is also known as the Plaza de la Constitución. It contains a giant Mexican flag at its centre and has been the centrepiece of public gatherings since the days of the Aztecs. On one side it hosts the beautiful Cathedral, and on the other, El Palacio Nacional.
Those are some of the places I visited here in Mexico City. Although I visited many other places. These are the main places that I visited again since the last time I was here. I wrote some posts earlier if you would like to have a look (see links below).
I highly recommend Mexico City! It’s a must visit city, full of history and hidden treasures!
