We visited the Palacio de Bellas Artes to see the Folkloric Ballet and were impressed its beauty including the glass curtain of the main theatre, designed by Gerardo Murillo and built by Tiffany.

Make sure to go inside, the museum has beautiful paintings. If you can, go to a performance inside the theatre, the venue is also impressive

Impressive on the outside and quite grand on the inside. When visiting the downtown area of the city it is certainly worth paying Bellas Artes a visit

Beautiful building very near to Zocola, there are a lot of restaurants and Shopping options around. There are a lot of transportation options to get there from any parts of Mexico City. Must Visit nearby is the National Post office, the building is very very nice inside and outside don't miss it It is very close to Zocola, National Palace.

What an incredible building to tour and see a show. The stained glass curtain in the auditorium is exquisite. It will take you back to the 20s.

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
