@centrohistorico Once the heart of Mesoamerican hub Tenochtitlán, the historic centre of downtown Mexico City is now a cluster of historic buildings built principally by the Spaniards from the rubble of Aztec temples and pyramids, as well as a shit ton of museums.
Vibe: Historic (duh), busy, the opposite of relaxing.
Top Attraction: It’s all about Bellas Artes and Parque Alameda in my opinion, but you can’t skip the buildings around the zocalo either.
Safety Rating: Safe in the day, but look out for pickpockets. Borderline sketchy at night.
Tourist Rating: Super touristy, but still one of the best neighbourhoods in Mexico City.
La Bibliotheca Vasconcelos is a mega library in Mexico City. If you love amazing modern architecture, this is one place you might drop your jaw on the floor. 📚
The most amazing about it is it is free for the public to use. You have bajillion of books, tables with lights, computer with internet, free WiFi, couch to rest, and outdoor balcony to rest your eyes on greens! 📚
There are also art and sculptures by Mexican artists scattered around with the huge Ballena #🐋 at the center of the library
I’m not here for the books but I totally would if I live in Mexico City. In fact, I’m a bit jealous of the students who have this at their disposal. Also nobody cared that I came to take photo of the place. I also don’t see anyone else doing it
To get there: Metro Station Buenavista. You cannot miss it as it is 38,000 sqm big .
