Stepping foot in Chapultepec is obligatory for any Mexico City resident, and equally for its visitors, being that it’s one of the spaces that best maintains its tradition and history. Children, adolescents and adults enjoy various activities, such as feeding the enormous fish that inhabit the lakes, visiting the animals in the zoo or running and exercising in the forest.

In the first section, there’s the sense of art and history, that house museums and cultural buildings like the Casa del Lago Juan José Arreola, the Museo de Arte Moderno, the Museo Tamayo and that of Antropología e Historia, in addition to the legendary Castillo de Chapultepec, scene of the Batalla del Molino del Rey y of the assault of the Colegio Militar, during the North American Intervention of 1847.
