The history of this city is visible in its constructions from pre-Hispanic times to the present day. The color of this city is painted from its roots to the bustle of urban folklore and its people.

In this list, we present the best places to take pictures worthy of storytelling.

Alameda Central

The Alameda Central is one of the main avenues of Mexico City in addition to its recognized historical landmarks such as the hemicycle to Juárez and a perfect building for a beautiful photograph. If you are lucky, you will find that in spring, this avenue turns purple thanks to the jacaranda trees that adorn the streets of Mexico City during this season.

It is a very picturesque area and contrasts with the central urban spirit of this area, and it is a lovely spot to take a beautiful photo.

Quetzalcoatl's nest

This place is completely amazing. It's like being in the Aztec version of Alice in Wonderland. El Nido was designed by the Mexican architect Javier Senosiain and is one of the leading examples of so-called organic architecture. And this photo is just one example of what you will see because inside you will find a ceiling of colored glass that will blow your mind.
It is not located in the historical center area, and it is necessary to make an appointment for the guided tour. But we believe it is worth the try.
