  Bellas Artes Palace

Only a few blocks away from the Zocalo (central square) area - where the Palacio Nacional and the Cathedral are located - we have the French style Palacio de las Bellas Artes (Fine Arts Palace), right next to the Latinoamericana Tower (one of the highest buildings in town and where you can have a panoramic view of the city, that is, when the day is not too polluted, and this doesn't happen very often unfortunately) and the Alameda Central, a big park. Many museums around here too. Make sure to pay a short visit to the Azulejos building, just beside Fine Arts Palace, which hosts a very popular store & restaurant here in Mexico (Sanborns) but which main attraction is the architecture and the decoration (both inside and outside), not the store located inside. Just go in to give a look and you'll like it very much cause it's very Mexican.
