I cannot begin to properly express our delight at watching this incredible show. It was Mexican pageantry at its best. The music was live and beautifully performed. The dancers were tireless in their exquisite and intricate dances of various regions and time periods. It was as spectacular and breathtaking as "Riverdance".

El Palacio de Bellas Artes is an eclectic construction with a superlative neoclassical exterior and an art-deco interior, with indigenous touches and exquisite panels from Rivera and others artists. The entrance is free on Sundays, making the place crowded. The café at the top of the Sears building has a perfect view of the palace and its surroundings.

The Palacio de Bellas Artes, designed by Federico Mariscal and opened in 1934, is an curious yet beautiful piece of architecture. The exterior of the building is largely neoclassical, built of white Italian marble, with ornamental touches of art nouveau, while the interior is pure art deco - red marble veneer, granite stairs, silver and gold fittings. It is hugely... More

Staying in Alameda

Neighborhood 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.
