First up is The Palacio de Bellas Artes.

Inaugurated in 1934, the Palacio de Bellas Artes in Mexico City is a major cultural center where you can attend poetry readings, operas, dance recitals, art shows and more. Its construction began in 1904, but took three decades to complete due to the Mexican Revolution and complications during the building process.

"The place in itself is a beauty," wrote visitor Analu. "The lobby feels like you’ve stepped back in time. The museum is well worth the visit."

Callejón Regina (Calle Regina Centro Histórico)

Then, there's Callejón Regina.

"I have seen the transformation of this alley. Back when it was a busy street until its current closure to cars, becoming a walking destination for pedestrians," wrote visitor Rebeca. "Undoubtedly, it is one of my favorite areas of the historic center."

Kiosco Morisco de Santa María la Ribera (Calle Salvador Díaz Mirón S/N)

Finally, consider checking out Kiosco Morisco de Santa María la Ribera.

"The kiosk of Santa María la Ribera is a benchmark of ancient Mexico," wrote visitor Maru. "Few people know, but this was a 100% Mexican architectural project that was assembled in the United States."
