  • Highly recommended to visit the Spain Cultural Center of the Donceles Street in the basement of the building is a Museum of the INAH, as were discovered remains of what used to be the Calmecac of the great Tenochtitlan (School of the Mexica nobility). In addition to part of the wall, sidewalk and drainage system, displayed various different parts, of which I caught my attention a unique piece: fragment of a human jaw incised with representation of "the serpent of fire". Other interesting parts are: the face of el Viento de Dios - Ehecatl - (the shrine located in metro Pino Suárez is in honor of the deity); Some arrowheads, some related to the Dios Xipe Totec engravings in bas-relief and a Coa. Two battlements which are preserved in perfect condition and represent a marine snail cut. Admission is free and they give you postcards. I suggest visiting the top which offers restaurant. Enjoy this interesting pre-Hispanic exhibition. LIFE... it's a TRIP!

  • The Centre has free activities open to the general public. Is located in the historic centre (Zocalo). The architecture of the site has many mezzanines and is all apparent cement. Rustic. Is a multidisciplinary cultural space with activities in the areas of: music, cinema, literature, children's activities, exhibitions and others. The goal is to promote cultural activities highlighting indigenous culture of Mexico. We saw an exhibition of paintings in skateboards, another of Mexican immigrants in the United States. A curiosity is architecture of bathrooms.

  • Amazing contemporary art collection
  • Great place for contemporary art
  • I visited Centro Cultural de Espana yesterday. The museum requires you to scan or check your bag, I decided to check it with security - thinking it would be safe. When I got my bag back, my iPhone had been stolen. Security was incredibly unhelpful and were the only ones with access to my bag. If you visit this museum, do not trust security with your bag.
