First constructed by Adamo Boari, then finished by architect Federico Mariscal, this spectacular opera house, has been an icon of Mexico's center. Located on one side of the central Park Alameda. It houses a fantastic Tiffany's screen representing the iconic mexican volcanos (The Popocatepetl and the Ixtaccihuatl) murals by Diego Rivera, Tamayo…. a great restaurant and incredible exhibits. If you... More

This is A beautiful Art Deco building. There is a temporary art show on the second floor which was not explained in English and seemed uninteresting except for the room itself and the gorgeous architecture and chandeliers within it! There are also outstanding large murals in the building by Rivera and his peers. In addition to the interest in the... More

Beautiful concert hall, both inside and outside. We went there to see an evening show of Ballet Folklorico with gallery tickets. Jaws were dropped as we entered the hall (won't spill the details here). Sound was good and the view was good even from our seats. All in all, a fun evening.

Visiting Mexico City with my mom, she had heard that the Ballet Folklorico shouldn't be missed. We visited the theater during the week to purchase tickets...difficult to find information on their shows, but no waiting in line for tickets once we found out where to go. The show was excellent - the dancing professional and energetic. As someone who normally... More

We went in to see the architecture. Unfortunately we couldn't get a look at the famous glass curtain. This is one of the largest if not THE largest and most impressive opera houses in Latin America.

Come for the murals and stay for the other paintings and exhibits. Also the architecture of the building is amazing in and of itself.

A truly beautiful building in downtown Mexico City, with a very Belle Epoch feeling. There are great murals by Diego Rivera, which in themselves are worth a visit. The museum had a temporary exhibit showing how many ancient statues, mostly marble, that we regard as colorless, actually had beautiful colors all over them. There are also concerts here.

Staying in Alameda

Neighbourhood Profile
Alameda
This beautiful park was once the playground for the wealthiest families in the colonial era, and is now the perfect place where locals and visitors can spend a sunny weekend afternoon to relax or shop for souvenirs at the market. Kids can run around or grab a bite of cotton candy while teens and adults wander around admiring the charming gardens and the sculptures that adorn it. Once the heat rises, it may be time to visit one of the many cozy restaurants or cafés with its characteristic art nouveau facades to cool down and call it a day.
