The Palacio de Bellas Artes, located at the east end of Alameda Park, hosts notable events in music, dance, theatre, opera, and literature in Mexico and holds important exhibitions of painting, sculpture, and photography. The initial design and construction began in 1904, stopping completely by 1913. Construction began again in 1932 under Mexican architect Federico Mariscal and was completed in 1934. It was inaugurated that year as the first art museum in Mexico dedicated to exhibiting artistic objects for contemplation.

The building’s exterior is primarily Art Nouveau and Neoclassical, while the interior is primarily Art Deco. The building is best known for its murals by Diego Rivera, Siqueiros and others, as well as the many exhibitions and theatrical performances it hosts, including the Ballet Folklórico de México.

The walking tour will provide unstructured time for contemplation of the architecture, murals, temporary exhibitions, and one of the city’s finest art bookstores. Elevators are available only for those with limited mobility, seniors, and pregnant people.
