“Beautiful park and castle in the heart of the city”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

A lot of history involves this castle and its well maintained. Went on sunday, and the entrance is free for mexicans, but there's a lot of people, I dont recommend it on a sunday.
The view you have from the top of the castle its wonderful. You can reach the castle by walking (about 10-12 min) or by the tourist train.

“Plan for a long uphill hike, but well worth it.”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

In the center of Chapultepec Park. A long climb up - though lazy sorts can take a little train ride. A beautiful castillo with artifacts and exhibits including much from colonial times. Beautiful gardens.
