Five places to visit in Mexico City (Part 2)

I love living in Mexico City. I love the fact that I can go see so many things here just by getting in my car or taking public transportation.

Most people would have to hop on an airplane and travel a long way to see these sites.

If you are ever visiting Mexico, here are five more places to visit in Mexico City.

  1. Chapultepec Castle: The Castle in Chapultepec is a great place to visit. It’s where Maximilian lived while he was emperor of Mexico.
  2. Anthropology Museum: An interesting place to see the history of all the different people that have lived in Mexico and who make it what it is today.
  3. Mexico City Post office: I love the post office’s building and architecture. Inside, there is a huge staircase, and it’s just a beautiful place overall. It’s located beside the Palacio de Bellas Artes (the Fine Arts Palace), and it won’t take much time to visit, but it is a work of art.
  4. Basilica de Guadalupe: The second most visited Catholic site in the world, after the Vatican, is a gigantic complex that will help you understand more about Mexico’s culture, religion, and people. Here’s a video of the Basilica de Guadalupe and the Castle of Chapultepec.
  5. Xochimilco – sort of like Mexico’s Venice, it’s a great place to experience traditional Mexico City. (Xochimilco pictures 1, pictures 2, video of mariachi band, video of more music in Xochimilco, another video of Xochimilco
