This castle is a former palace that is now a museum located inside Chapultepec park. The park itself is really enormous like NYC's Central Park, you will have to do quite a bit of walking through the park (and up!) to reach the entrance gates....More

This is a beautiful castle to walk around and enjoy the view, the rooms and the gardens. Pay close attention to quirky things, like a fountain with a giant cricket!

Good service, good food. The place is a bit crowded so service although reasonably good was not exceptional. The restaurant is in a classy building and the attendants outfits were very traditional.

Great place to visit. If you do not read Spanish well, do some research before to add context to the art and building.
