#1 of 201 Sights & Landmarks in Mexico City
Javier was most knowledgeable and provided us with the history of the areas we visited as well as introducing us to sights, sounds and tastes of modern life in Mexico City.
My friend and I just finished a fabulous four day visit to Mexico City with Stylewalk MX We were there to explore the art and cultural sites of this beautiful city.

Excellent visit where you learn history as you view some of the best murals of Mexico.
The accessibility of art in Mexico is incredible and so unlike the US! Historically an important site for understanding the roots of public support for art, particularly the muralists.

Lovely town, great food and great art museum...we took a little tour bus around the city and got to see Frida's house and some other interesting landmarks....great place to spend a day or two.....we loved it!!
Aside from the big church, the other atractive site is the old house of Hernan Cortés, the house of Frida Kahlo and the traditional coffee shop El Jarocho.

... the impressive building and the botanical garden but of course the Diego Rivera Murals and amazing, they tell his view of the history of Mexico and it's fantastic to see they are kept in pristine condition.
However, I imagine few have the time (or interest), or even the knowledge, that visitors are allowed inside the National Palace and are able to see so many spectacular sights!

... was it worth it, just learning the history behind this lovely lady and why she is so loved by many. the plaza is fun to walk around, see the garden, sculptures and get your souvenirs blessed by a priest on site!
We enjoyed walking around the enormous site - and up Tepeyac hill for another chapel and great view across the valley (I thought about the Velasco landscapes from the late 1800s I saw in the National museum a few...

A memorable stroll we took was a leisurely one from the apartment to Castillo de Chapultepec, taking in the 44th floor of Torre Latinoamericana for outstanding panoramic views and a visit to the gorgeous Palacio d...

It was wonderful to see more than 30 years later that the excavation site is now a wonderful museum where natives and tourists alike can learn about the ancient city that gave rise to the metropolis it is today.

When in Mexico City, I can OD on historical sites and monuments and find Polanco a nice refuge from it all for elegant venues, be they exclusive stores or world class restaurants.
The area is close to the Paseo De la Reforma and offers some great site seeing of well kept buildings in the area.

Casual spot in Mexico City to try all sorts of new things, as well as sights that resemble a wide spectrum of the city's past and present.
All structures were low rise structures so it was perfect to view them on top of an open double decker bus.

This gorgeous monument provides views of tree lined boulevards and excellent example of the city's mixture of old and new architecture.
You can actually climb a flight of stairs to the top but to be honest the view isnt much since it is mostly surrounded by tall buildings and you can see down Reforma Street from the Chapultepec Castle which is a f...

This Church rises from stones taken from the ruins of the Aztec temples and buildings located around the site of the last battle between the Spanish and the Aztecs where the Spanish defeated the Aztec kings.
Plaza de las Tres Cultures in the Tlatelotco section is a sobering reminder of history, and the site is free.

And this time, the ruins they found years ago, the last time I visited, are now unearthed, exposed, and on display for visitors to view.
