Didn't go inside the library, but the exterior is elaborately and colorfully decorated. I wish more public buildings were displayed as well.

the UNAM is a well known university in Mexico City. Visiting gives you the vibes of a college campus with lots of history. One of the buildings is a phenomenal mural. Walk around, it will make you want to go to school there.

It is an interesting place to know not only because of its size, but of its variety of cultural, artistic, sports and social activities: you will find museums, classic music, sports facilities, theater, huge library, etc.

It is amazing to realize that there are over 300,000 students studying at this site. The murals of the library and the surrounding buildings, as well as the Rivera murals on the Olympic Stadium across the street are amazing.

The library is an impresive work of art. The murals on the rectory are also really amazing. I was equally impressed by some of the other art that sprawls like grafitti on certain walls of the campus. Is quite far from downtown.

The area is surrounded by very exquisite Mexican culture - it is just in the air! from the statues to the buildings, everything says "Aztecs" or "Mexicans" (pronounced Mejicans). For the intellectual person - this is a treat.

When I went to the Olympic Stadium we took the metro and the "metro bus." There's one that stops not too far from there, but you'll still have to walk to the stadium.
