  • this is an amazing castle located in the middle of the park. it is worth the visit. there are lovely murals and other works of are. the view from the balcony is amazing. make sure and wear comfortable shoes, because it's alot of walking. after you visit the castle, you might want to take a walk in the park, or havea picnic. there are so many things you can do. please note that there is no food or water allowed inside the castle.

  • A must see! The view from the castle is phenomenal - I think that the view itself is worth a visit. You'll walk up a shallow hill for about 10 minutes, so I would recommend not wearing heels. It is free for everyone on Sunday!

  • A must see in Mexico. It’s a beautiful museum with some amazing murals and art pieces. It has a great view of the city as well. There are no signs in English, get a guide.
