What to expect

Live the experience of visiting America's only real castle! Chapultepec Castle houses the most representative historical heritage of Mexico, during times like the conquest, the Empire, Independence, and Revolution.

You will learn from your expert guide which will drive you into both amazing museums. Get to know how the life of Emperor Maximilian of Habsburg was behind the walls of this castle, decorated in classical European ornamentation. Walkthrough its halls, go through the stairs made of marble, admiring the sculptures and busts of historical figures, like the emperor Cuauhtémoc and the conqueror Hernán Cortés.

During the colonial period, Chapultepec was appreciated as a place of resting and relaxation, for it was built at the top of a hill, on the foundations of what was once the residence of Moctezuma II Xocoyotzin, a palace that gave shelter to numerous viceroys and distinguished visitors for over two centuries. However, the explosion of a powder magazine in the mid-eighteenth century, which caused serious damage to the building, led to the decision that the new palace was built on top of the hill, right on the site of an ancient chapel dedicated to San Miguel Archangel.

After visiting the National Museum of History, better known as the Castle of Chapultepec, you'll make a quick stop for lunch (not included in the price) and then continue to the famous National Museum of Anthropology, house of the Pre-hispanic evidence of the Mexica, Maya, Toltec and the country's ethnic cultures through time. The museum remains the flagship of the enclosures that safeguard the Mexican indigenous heritage.
