Was closed due to the teacher protests, but the police let us through the barricade to check it out. So nice. Great architecture and lots of shops and restaurants near by.
don't go on a monday. its closed. an in depth history into how spain took over mexico, and the palace used to serve as the office of the president.
I know there are other sites other than Diego's murals, but those murals were pretty amazing. Diego painted these murals as a means for the general public to be exposed to art - this attraction is free. The murals take you through Mexico's rich history. The palacio is located right in the center, close to the Metropolitan Cathedral and Templo... More
A copy of Madrid's main square. Surounded by colonial hotels, mexican restaurants and shops. Outdoor aztec dancers. Do not try September 15th-16th crowded and closed streets.
Just like Madrid's main square. Surounded by beautiful colonial hotels, mexican restaurants, outdoor aztec dance performers, stores and jewels. Don't try september 15th. 100% occupancy, streets closed and very crowded.

Is the equivalent of the White House in Mexico, only that here the President do not have his home. The home of the President in knows as Los Pinos, and is in another location. Interesting visit to the different wings and different salons, and the paintings of all Mexican Presidents.
Went here as part of a former job in Mexico City ... For a quick walk-around it is a cool visit ... however there is not that much to see in the public space (it is the Presidential Office building) and the temporary exhibits tend to be expensive ... I recommend the Cathedral more.
Just like the Piramides and the Museum of Anthropology, the National Palace (Palácio Nacional), the Zocalo and the Templo Maior (all verry near to each other) are a must. You can´t go to México City and not visit them. During this visit you will start to understand mexican history.
