Reviews Mexico City
Modernism was characterized by magnificent skyscrapers that sprung up in districts such as Polanco, Anzures, Del Valle and Santa Fe. The advantage of a mega-city such as Mexico City is that it offers the visitor all sorts of entertainment possibilities during the day and at night. Avenues like Avenida Insurgentes are true axis of fun and recreation and has spots that cater to all tastes. Mexican culture in all its manifestations can be admired at the large number of quality museums that can be found in many different parts of the city. These have displays and exhibitions of art and culture ranging from the pre Hispanic (the National Museum of Anthropology) to the Vice Regal (the Franz Mayer Museum) to the modern (the Museum of Modern Art), as well as Mexican traditions as can be seen in the Frida Kahlo Museum.
There are also plenty of possibilities for those who want to leave the city and enjoy nature. You can visit the volcanic mountains in the south of the city or the mountain valleys to the west and enjoy the quesadillas (melted cheese in tortillas) that can be bought at the food stalls located in the shade of the forest trees that form part of the National Parks and Ecological Reserves. To the east, the traveler can admire the snow-capped volcanoes of Popocatepetl and Iztaccíhuatl, just as the Indians, Conquistadors and general population of the city did over the centuries.
The most important place for national and international classical concerts and the other performing arts in Mexico City is the beautiful Palacio de Bellas Artes (The Palace of Fine Arts). Other important venues include the Teatro de la Ciudad (The City Theater), the Auditorio Nacional (the National Auditorium), the Juan Ruiz de Alarcón Theater and the Nezahualcoyotl and Ollin Yoliztli concert halls.
