Zócalo and Historical Center

Mexico City

If there is something that amazes locals and travelers, it's the Historical Center of Mexico City. With the Palacio Nacional or the Metropolitan Cathedral and in the background, the vestiges of the Aztec Empire. Enjoying them is very simple, since they are only separated by a few yards. All you need is time and the desire to know their history.

The postal service was the main means of communication, before whatsapp, email, fax or telegram. Many people stayed in touch and hoped to receive news from virtually anywhere in the world, thanks to this system. Mexico, “Ciudad de los grandes palacios” (Great palaces city) and its Porfirian boom at the beginning of the 20th century, could not be left behind. This is why a Postal Palace was built on Calle de Tacuba.

If you know the Mexican capital, you will immediately remember the building, but if it is your first time, we are sure you will notice it. Its quarry facade of Chiluca is unforgetable and elegant. But, the opulence does not end there, it continues inside, where its Italian marble and bronze coatings will invite you to send an old-fashioned letter, because it continues operating to this day.

In front of the Eje central, Lázaro Cárdenas, you will find the Palacio de Bellas Artes, a cultural site that houses temporary and permanent exhibitions of paintings and sculptures.

Its theater is so versatile that it has been the scene of concerts by the National Symphony Orchestra, Opera and classical dance, as well for national and international artists and singers such as Juan Gabriel, a mexican singer.

If you go inside the Alameda Central you will find the Hemiciclo to Juárez, with its dazzling white marble , courtesy of the Carrara. You must look at it closely to admire all of its details, or if you wish from across in the sidewalk where you can enjoy a great panoramic view.
