Sitting atop Chapultepec hill is this gorgeous castle, which was built as a summer house for viceroy Bernardo de Gálvez and served as official residence of emperor Maximiliano I. These days, you can view furniture, paintings and historic documents on display, and take a tour of the castle’s many rooms, including Empress Carlota’s bedroom.
