Admire works from Mexican and international artists at Palacio de Bellas Artes. 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. When the building was finally completed in the 1930s, a touch of art nouveau influence added to the melange of styles. Immerse yourself in Mexican fine culture at the impressive palace, which today houses several museums and galleries, as well as a theater.

  • Big city, great hotel Barcelo; went to see Xochimilco Garibaldi ( be careful, just stay in the park ) best thing was to take the red sightseeing bus, because it covered a lot… drink bottled water...

  • Amazing building that deserves much more time than I have given to it to be honest. Details, shape and unique ornaments are phenomenal. Would recommend to anyone that visits Mexico City to stop by...

  • One of the most beautiful, breathtaking places in Mexico city, even for Mexican citizens. With a unique history of it's construction (to mark a century past independence from Spanish rule) its architecture is a confluence of Mexican, Spanish and French work. It has both Neovlassical and Deco (modern) art. It ha memoirs of Spanish heritage, Art and culture of Mexico. It has a performance theatre, open to all. If you're a student travelling with a international student ID, you can probably get into one of their finest theatres for real cheap. Built into the heart of the city, it is the most popular spot for CDMX.
  • It is the Palace of the Fine Arts! Art Deco original style. You can assist to several activities depending the season, such as opera, expositions, art gallery, folklore national academy presentations etc. There's a souvenirs shop to buy quite nice art reproductions or lithos... Art books, memorabilia and stuff. Tickets for main events can be purchased online or directly in the Palace ticket window. Free entrance if going to the souvenir shop or to be wandering around its glorious marble main hall.
