Palacio de Bellas Artes

After a great brunch at our hotel on Sunday, Aaron and I took a short walk to the Alameda Central Park to see the Palacio De Bellas Artes (Palace of Beautiful Art).

Unfortunately the park was closed for construction, but we were able to go inside the Palacio and see some murals (no pictures allowed). I was happy Aaron got the chance to see some of Diego Rivera´s work up close and personal.

Since the park was closed, we headed to a cafe near the top floor of a Sears department store located across the street from the Palacio. I read about it in a guide book and it supposedly had a great view. We had some cold drinks and a brownie and got to see a rare view of the mountains surrounding Mexico City.

The Palacio has a theater inside and I am planning to go to a folkloric ballet show there next week (Aaron was not into that idea).

  1. These photos are so nice! The 2 of you look great, and the Palacio is interesting and beautiful. Thank you for sharing your experiences with us, Miriam.

    Have you thought of giving Oliver some competition. You're a pretty good photographer.
