The Palacio Nacional is a must when in Mexico City. Not only is the a government building, it also home to multiple Diego Rivera murals that detail the history of the Mexican people. The murals are beautiful and a must-see when visiting Mexico City.

Loved its manicured grounds, history seeped in murals, Diego Rivera paintings and Benito Juarez's preserved writings and works. Must see to get a view of Mexico's heritage, culture and people.
