National Palace, Mexico City

Although it is stamped, it was never written.  It dates from a holiday I took in Mexico, in 1998.

The National Palace in Mexico City has been the seat of government since Aztec times.  It is located in El Zócalo, the city square, which is one of the largest in the world.  Much of the building material is the same used in the original owned by Moctezuma II.   Inside are diego Riviera's murals painted from 1929 to 1952, depicting Mexican history.  They are wonderful to see.Reblog this post [with Zemanta]
