The Diego Rivera Murals were out of this world definitely a must see. Also the entire palace area was just serene and beautiful.

The Palacio Nacional is an impresive goverment building on the Zócalo. It fills the entire east side of the Zócalo and is over 200 meters long. The facade of the Palacio Nacional has a special red tezontle facade.
The buidling is famous because on the main balcony on September 15, the president of Mexico gives the Grito de Dolores, in a ceremony to commemorate Mexican Independence.
We went inside the Palacio Nacional especially to see the great murals of Diego Rivera about the history of Mexico. The Palacio Nacional is worth a visit.

I recommend paying the $400 pesos for one hour guide. This made the visit much more interesting as he told us more about the paintings of Diego Rivera. Without his help we would have not seen all the information in the paintings.

Sadly we didn’t have enough tome to explore this site fully but what we did see of it was truly impressive, it’s worth a visit for the Diego Rivera Murals alone! But if you have the time lend a few hours to this place to explore its grounds.
