National palace, mexico d.f.

The National Palace, residence of President of the Republic, is on the site of the palace of Emperor Montezuma, where he settled after Hernán Cortés conquered the Empire. It is a big building that was constructed to demonstrate the wealth of the city and impress visitors. But what really stands out is inside, Diego Rivera murals painted between the years 1929 and 1935 in the height of the revolution. If we stop in front of each one, for example in front of "The History of Mexico", we can see a partisan view, understood as the struggle between good (pre-Columbian peoples and bad (colonialist and capitalist ) politicians appear in the mural as Porphyry and Madero, La Malinche, the Inquisition, Zapata cartel after Tierra y Libertad, Juarez, Hidalgo and Cuauhtemoc, among others.There were also murals of Tlaxcaltecas Aztec, Tarascan and especially the mural of Tenochtitlan, which can be the most impressive as it was the recreation of the Aztec capital.

Diego rivera mural museum

This museum is great. I took a few pictures of his work there, so that I can appreciate it fully. I've been lucky enough to see his work at a couple of places in both America and Europe. I would recommend this place and his work to anyone.
