Metro Bellas Artes is a station along Line 2 and Line 8 of the Mexico City Metro system. It is located in the Colonia Centro district of the Cuauhtémoc borough of Mexico City, on the junction of Avenida Juárez and Eje Central Lázaro Cárdenas, on the eastern end of the Alameda Central, west of the city centre. The Line 2 section of the station was among the first to be opened in the system on 14 September 1970; the transfer with Line 8 was inaugurated on 20 July 1994. The station is situated next to the Palacio de Bellas Artes opera house and museum, opened in 1934. The logo represents the Palace as seen from the main southern entrance. French President Jacques Chirac inaugurated a treasured Hector Guimard style art nouveau Paris Métro entrance next to the western wing of the Palace on 14 November 1998. The entrance was a gift given in return for a Huichol mural presented in 1997 to the Paris Métro that is now on display at the Palais Royal – Musée du Louvre station. Inside the station, the platforms in Line 2 show reproductions of Mesoamerican art. Similarly, the Line 8 platforms are decorated with colourful murals, with Mexican and French motifs.

Bellas Artes, Mexico City Reviews - Write a Review

  • It's a incredible place to visit at night

  • a little confusing. mind there's several exits, far apart!

  • A- Must for visitors!

  • Es un bellísimo lugar. A veces hay vendedores ambulantes de libros cultos y te embelesan con resúmenes de los libros. Hay uno cubano muy amable.

  • Es un hermoso lugar y cuando hay exposiciones son muy bellas. Vale la pena visitarla con tiempo.y si hay oportunidad de verla desde el mirador de la torre latinoamericana es lo mejor.
