Palacio de Bellas Artes

This breathtaking building was completed in 1934 and has been the most important center for fine arts in the country ever since. The main hall boasts works of art such as the crystal curtain with an image of the Popocatépetl and Iztaccíhuatl volcanoes, and a beautiful crystal chandelier. The National Opera Company and the National Symphonic Orchestra hold their season performances here.
