Murales in the Palacio Nacional
The most important reason to visit this Palacio Nacional is certainly, the wall painting (Murales) of Diego Riviero; he painted these walls between 1929 and 1935. These paintings are reflecting the history of Mexico seen through the eyes of Diego Riviero.
When you go up the main stairs, coming from the courtyard, you’ll see a very big wall painting. It shows a part of the Mexican history, like the Aztec period, the colonial period, the French occupation, the Mexican revolution . . .
Unfortunately, it was very dark at that place and it was prohibited to use a flash, so I was not able to make a picture of this masterpiece. The picture I added here is one of the many frescos you can see on the sidewalk at the first floor.
This Colonial palace built in 1692 is home of the offices of the president. It also includes some famous murals by Diego Rivera. Admission to the palace is free but you must show an ID to get in.
