The Palace of Fine Arts is the most important opera in Mexico which also has a museum. It was built to commemorate 100 years of Mexican Independence in 1910 and today it is one of the most popular buildings in Mexico as a result of its Art-Deco design.

The building process came to a halt and recommenced following the Mexican Revolution by decorating the inside of the palace with an art noveau style. Some of the artists who decorated the interior of this famous building are Diego Rivera, David Alfaro Siqueiros and Rufino Tamayo.

The Fine Arts Museum is located on the second and third floors of the palace and it displays paintings and contemporary sculptures. The museum displays a permanent exhibition which includes 17 Mexican murals, as well as temporary Mexican and international art exhibitions.

The most important feature of the building is the theatre which is used for operas, dances and much more. Even if you don’t have time to go and see a show you should not miss the opportunity to go and see the building and the concert hall which is made of white marble and is really one of the most beautiful buildings in the city.
