This attraction reminds me of Europe - very beautiful building converted to historical monument/museum. Lots of walking (uphill to get there)...miles of it. And the Castle is sprawling...so your feet will be tired. Never fear, transportation is just a short 2 km away :-)

Although the walk up to the castle (once inside the gate) is a challenge, it's well worth the climb. Beautiful vistas and photo ops. The home is gorgeous and well kept. Gives a glimpse of the royalty who lived there and the opulence.

It's a great place to visit, to learn more about the history of Mexico, but most of all, for sightseeing, and taking wonderful pictures....if the weather helps!! It's a one of a kind and really worth the visit

We went up there on a nice sunny day. The castle is a long walk up the hill, but when getting there the 360 degrees view down to the city is awesome. I loved the second-floor garden with x-mas decoration. The murals are cool and the stained glass windows are superb. Definitely worth the long hike up and down.

We loved the palace with it's murals and historic artifacts. Beautiful rooms and gorgeous views of the city. If you visit Mexico City this is worth your time and we highly recommend touring the palace.
