Our National Palace is located in Mexico City´s Downtown area and is the emblematic building of our country. Within its walls you will find great works of art such as Diego Rivera´s painted murals on the main staircase and corridors of the central courtyard. The murals graphically narrate the history of Mexico from pre-Hispanic times to the twentieth century in a work full of symbolism, color and Mexican nationalism.
Catedral Metropolitana de la Ciudad de México
The Metropolitan Cathedral is the greatest expression of colonial architecture in the American continent, and stands in the Central Plaza of Mexico City (Zocalo) as the largest in Latin America. Built over three centuries, we can appreciate renaissance, baroque and neoclassical elements that intertwine to shape a work of great cultural and spatial wealth unique in its kind.
This archeological site houses the namesake Museum that opened its doors in 1987. The museographic project is based on the layout of the Temple itself, in which two deities were worshiped: Huitzilopochtli, solar god of the war and lord of the Mexicas, and Tlaloc, god of rain linked directly to agriculture. It is located in Downtown Mexico City, right next to the National Palace.

“Where men became gods”. The pre-Hispanic city of Teotihuacan was one of the largest urban centers of the ancient world that came to concentrate a population over one hundred thousand inhabitants in its time of maximum splendor.

Museo Frida Kahlo – La Casa Azul
Being able to deepen our understanding about Frida Kahlo´s artwork and having an opportunity to visit her home, brings us closer to find the strong links between Frida, her work and her house. Her creative universe can be found in “La Casa Azul” (The Blue House), place where she was born and where she died. Located in one of the most beautiful and historic neighborhoods in Mexico City, “La Casa Azul” became a museum in 1958 – four years after her death.
