First, the walk is not too bad. It's uphill for about 20 minutes, constant slope up but no stairs and no dodging vehicles. It is worth it to see the palace, art, gardens and views. Gorgeous views! You can't bring water bottles in but can...More

Overall is a great experience, you feel like you are in a bubble from the noise and traffic. It has some murals of Orozco that they are worth the walk up to the castle. Most of the galleries are focus on the history of Mexico...More

The castle is located on a hill and was kind of a climb, not bad but if you have bad hips or knees take the elevator to the top. The view of the city from the top is amazing. I loved walking though and seeing...More

It is a great way to spend a few hours. First, you walk in a nice park, then you need to go a bit up hill - a nice hike with rewarding views from the top. When you go inside the palace, it has a...More
