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.

This huge and modern university campus is not very accessible. I visited it using only public transportation and my own two feet, an experience I will not repeat. See it on a tour. It's definitely impressive and filled with art.

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.
