No reviews, be the first!

At the center of enormous and chaotic Mexico City, lies a 686-hectare (1695-acre) shady sanctuary of quiet lagoons, groves of trees and grassy expanses covered with families having picnics during the weekends. This oasis in the urban jungle is called Chapultepec Park, Nahuatl “Hill of the Grasshoppers Park,” named for the rocky bluff that rises from its center.

Upon that hill is Chapultepec Castle, a Spanish Colonial construction that was briefly the seat of the short-lived Mexican Empire.
