This is a great point of interest. If you go to Mexico City you have to go there. It's at a walking distance from the Museo de Antropología

Chapultepec castle is the only "legit"castle in Latin America. If you're expecting Europe forget it.. But it is very cool and worth the visit. The views are amazing and the Entrada de Los Leones looks great from above. Plus you're in the middle of Chapultepec park so it's perfect.

We walked through the park and then up the walk to the castle. the view from the upper floors is spectacular. the garden up at the top is immaculately manicured. the history well preserved/ we spent 2 hours there and could have stayed longer but were tired? we WILL go back again.

A wonderful place to visit. Walk up the path and enjoy the pristine gardens. Once you reach the castle, you pay 60 pesos to enter. A grand place, rooms of history! Outside court yards! Took 2 hours strolling. Learned facts and history.

We were really surprised at how well preserved the castle is. The stained glass windows are amazing and the history is very interesting. This is a meningitis well spent.

Apart from having priceless historical objects, this magnificent Castle also allows us to learn how emperors and presidents used to live, as well as granting us a beautiful view of CDMX Even Elton John give a concert in the Castle :) Chapultepec Castle is located only a few minutes of the Zoo and in the main center of the Chapultepec...

A diverse selection of art and history coupled with great views of the park and surrounding high rise buildings. Note that the exhibits are exclusively in Spanish, so English-only speakers like myself may not get the most out of what the museum has to offer

Located on top of a hill overlooking the Reforma and Polanco skyscrapers, the Chapultepec Castle is a breath-taking time capsule of the long gone imperial past of Mexico. The main halls feature staggering collections of jewels and luxurious items (such as a gold coated carriage), as well as a huge collection of paintings depicting dukes and barons of New Spain,...
