The Mexican Supreme Court building has some fabulous murals. Jose Clemente Orozco has four famous ones there there. Those are worth the trip by themselves. But the most important reason to go is sometimes not mentioned in guidebooks. It is, imo, a set of murals...More

This is a government building open only on weekdays and requiring identification. But the staff is very welcoming to tourists, and the free audio guide (English) and map are helpful. Every stairway (4 corners) is decorated by a different artist, and some are striking in...More
