A Rich Tradition of Art and Architecture
Since its founding in 1325, Mexico City has been a vibrant social hub and a center for Mexican tradition and culture. With such a long history, the city is filled with intriguing architecture from different periods providing an eclectic mixture of styles, from elegant and graceful to garish; each one interesting and photogenic.
One of the most beautiful buildings is the Palacio de Las Bellas Artes, a grandiose performing arts theatre with a remarkable stained glass curtain. Home to Mexico’s Folkloric Ballet, the theatre hosts artistic groups from around the world and it is well worth a visit when you are traveling to Mexico.
The Palacio de Las Bellas Artes also houses a museum containing murals by Diego Rivera and Rufino Tamayo. Other museums and architectural gems to see are the Metropolitan Cathedral, which took 250 years to build, and the National Palace. Let Aeromexico’s special fares take you there today.
