Bellas Artes Tips (33)

during its construction (1904-1934!),they realized the building was sinking in the very light and unstable ground(as if it was butter!)
today,it goes on sinking:its unique quality!
since its achievement,has lost 4 meters...

Palacio de Bellas Artes

This Jugendstil-Palacio is build in 1904, it is built in Carrara marble. The interior is in Art-Deco. It is in fact concert hall but also an arts center. On the second and third floor you can see beautiful paintings. There is no entry fee to visit the first floor, the bookstore, souvenir shop and the restaurant are on that same floor. In the evening, you can see here a show of typical Mexican music and dancing. The entry was quite expensive (12US$ - 29US$).

The Palace of Fine Arts

Started to be the National Theater, it was meant to be the top-of-the-art modernist (art-nouveau) structure; it was completed 30 years later as a top-of-the-art Decó structure in its interior, while its exterior fulfilled the original art-nouveau objective. It houses an art museum, the opera house, and several small concert chambers, theaters, and galleries.

Unfortunately we weren't able to catch a concert here, but we were able to tour the lobby and grounds which were beautiful.

One of the symbols of the city.

You really can't miss it. It stands at the beginning of the Alameda. The concert hall has Diego Rivera's murals inside.
