This place is absolutely gorgeous! From the rows of flags that have been utilized for different battles to the museum and the history behind the structure and the merry go round and the large chess board and the list goes on and on! We need to go back again!

it is not a place that people tell you to visit but it was definitely one of my favorites. This place should really be at the top of the list when you visit Monterrey. There is a museum but it was closed when I visited so nothing to say about that. However, there is a lookout point that oversees all... More

My friends took me here on a recent visit to Monterrey and I'm glad that they did. It's a must-see without being a tourist trap. There are several viewpoints for lovely photos, and you'll likely catch a few brides or girls on their fiesta de quinceañera- it's a popular place to take photos on special occasions. As a visitor it's... More

Even though the museum is fairly small, it is indeed very interesting. You will learn about city history and enjoy the fantastic views from up there. Take your cameras because you wont get a better view of the city than from here. Just one thing I would like to suggest, if you are taking a stroller be prepared to carry... More

Museum is fairly small, Sunday entrance is free, on a clear day you can enjoy great views of the city, the visit can be done in about an hour.

We did visit the museum, but the bit we really remember is the view. Amazing panoramic view of the whole City and surrounding mountains. You can drive virtually to the top, walking the last 100m to the viewing area. Well worth the visit, especially on a clear day. .

This museum has not much inside but outside it has beautiful view of the whole city, you can sit on one of the cannons used for war and see how the world goes on down there in the city. If you go on weekends, they have a free lights and sound show for everyone at around 9 p.m., you will... More

We were arriving there late near to 10pm. They are very punctual in the closure, and they closed the gate at 10 sharp. I think its bad since we need to climb over the gate to get into our car, but quite a good experience to climb over the gate. The view from Obispado is gorgeous !! We were there... More
