Why locals love it

The castle is rich of Mexican history and the thing people love the most about it is the view from the balcony. It has a very relaxing atmosphere that is hard to find in the city. Somehow Mexicans really like to watch the traffic and it relaxes them because they are grateful for not being in the middle of it.

Why you should visit it

The amazing thing about Mexico City is that right in the middle of this megapolis you can find a nearly 700 hectares forest (Bosque de Chapultepec). In this forest lies a gorgeous castle, with a stunning view to the city. If you like the rare installation of history and nature placed in the middle of a busy capital, this is for you.

Special tip

You can leave your stuff in lockers located at the beginning of the way to the castle. Entrance fee is $64 MXN/$4 USD. Reach from Metro Chapultepec.
