We went on Sunday, when museums and attractions like this are free to Mexican residents so it was very crowded but still worth it for the view and the beautiful rooms we got to see.

The castle housed Maximillian and his consort Carlota during the second Mexican empire. It offers a great view of the city. liquids are not allowed inside the castle. Prepare to walk.
