This building may look painted but is actually done in mosaic. It mixes in the ancient aztec design with modern art. Lovely.

We stopped here while on a trip to Mexico city, we loved the Mosaics and thought it was well worth the stop for some fine pics. 30 mins is long enough to get a look

There is more architecture that you can see in one day here, with work of master architects. This place represents the golden era of Mexico, you should not miss the "espacio escultorico" with works from artists like Mathias Goeritz.

I only have time stopping to admire the mural mosaic work for short time. It was raining hard and I wish I stayed longer and admire the amazing work from the far distance closer!
