The library is an impresive work of art. The murals on the rectory are also really amazing. I was equally impressed by some of the other art that sprawls like grafitti on certain walls of the campus. Is quite far from downtown.

The area is surrounded by very exquisite Mexican culture - it is just in the air! from the statues to the buildings, everything says "Aztecs" or "Mexicans" (pronounced Mejicans). For the intellectual person - this is a treat.

This huge and modern university campus is not very accessible. I visited it using only public transportation and my own two feet, an experience I will not repeat. See it on a tour. It's definitely impressive and filled with art.

We took a side trip to the UNAM Botanical Gardens at the university. The gardens are sizable, very well maintained, ecclectic, and obviously enjoyed by the University students. The gardens contain many specimens of indigenous as well as rare and exotic plant specimens as well...More

Alas building closed the day we visited (Constitution day) but enjoyed walking around, watching people (and dogs) enjoy the space. Missed seeing the art though.

When I went to the Olympic Stadium we took the metro and the "metro bus." There's one that stops not too far from there, but you'll still have to walk to the stadium.
