The Craddle of High Culture
El Palacio de Bellas Artes is perhaps Mexico City's most charismatic building, which really comes across in this nocturnal rendition of this must see landmark. It's just the epitome of high culture and is a wonderful treat for art lovers who are eager to seek out engrossingly passionate work of Mexican arts as well as others from around the world. Locales and foreigners admire the mural art that decorates the internal walls. Murals by Jose Clemente Orozco, David Alfaro Siqueiros and Diego Rivera take the viewer to a journey into the heart of Mexican history and complex society introducing us into Mexico's achievements and tragedies.
This souvenir from Mexico serves as an enchanting reminder of the artistic accomplishments that visually have made Mexico what it is known as and what it is recognized for by those who take the time to pay a closer look. Nestled in the well known historical district, this building represents culture. It even features theatrical performances most of which are folkloric in nature, which comes as no surprise. In fact, if you stroll around the building you may enjoy the numerous renditions of Aztec gods that grace the interior.
An Artistic Building in a Historic Neighborhood
All in all, it is just a beautiful building that has been designed to evoke a certain artistic grandeur and classful taste that one can't help but gaze at. In 1987, UNESCO declared this building a heritage monument of Humanity. The Palacio de Bellas Artes is not alone in this display of Neoclassic, Art Noveau and Colonial architecture. The Palacio de Correos and the House of the Azulejos, just to name two of dozens of buildings, contribute to create the splendor of the Historical Center of the biggest city in the world.
