The National Palace Apr 03, 2005
Situated on the Eastern side of Costitution Square.The National Palace is said to have been built on the site of Moctezuma II's palace from Aztec times.

The Palace is most visited to see the murals Diego Rivera painted between 1929 and 1952. These colorful murals show Mexican history from prehispanic times to the workers' movement of the 1930's. on the main stairwell leading to the first flooris the most famous of the murals which depicts every major event and person of Mexican history, from Cortés’ conquest of the Aztecs and Mexico to the Mexican Revolution, all with Rivera’s typical Marxist twist. The most famous being the "Epic of the Mexican People in their Struggle for Freedom and Independence", which condenses two thousand years of history onto the space of a wall.
