Unfortunately we were not able to get in as we needed an appointment for a guided tour and we could not adjust to the available schedules. It is a pitty we could not just walk in to the Palace.

Close to Palacio de bellas artes and Palacio Postal, it is yet another beautiful palace in Mexico City centro. A museum is hosted inside but in my opinion, the building itself is interesting rather than the collections inside.

Built by the great architect Manuel Tolsa 200 years ago, this jewel remains a working place (i.e. palace). A superb library, fresco ceiling Chapel, imposing Hall of Events, beautiful staircase. Make sure to hire a tour that you will certainly enjoy.

It is a great place for architecture lovers who want to know about Mexican architecture and different styles from another time. It is also a historical place and the ticket is very cheap around 2 dollars.

Its located very near the old post office that is across from Bellas Artes Palace. So you can visit all three easily. Its more plain then the others however its very impressive and built solid.
