  • Murial on the wall was something to look at, this is just a university, nothing too much to say about it...... 
  • The University City, headquarters of the National Autonomous University of Mexico, is a site of great importance to Mexico not only in academia, research and dissemination of culture, but it is itself in a great work of art. For all their values UNESCO classified it as a "Heritage of humanity". The murals that decorate many of its buildings were the work of the great Mexican masters such as Diego Rivera, David Alfaro Siqueiros, Juan O'Gorman, José Chávez Morado and Francisco Eppens. Its Olympic Stadium, which hosted the 1968 Olympics, is a masterpiece of landscape architecture. Meanwhile most new (in construction), which is accessed by the "outer circuit" has, in turn, works of major contemporary sculptors of Mexico as master Hersúa, Helen Escobedo, Federico Silva, Manuel Felguerez, Sebastian and Matías Goeritz. Within the University City the MUAC(Museo Universitario de Arte Contemporáneo) greenhouse Faustino Miranda, outdoor Botanical Garden, Central Library, national library, the national library, the sculptural Space Center, the fabulous concerts "Sala Nezahualcoyotl" arena we can find, in addition to schools, faculties and institutes, important museums as Universum, MUCA (Museo Universitario de Ciencias y Arte), , restaurants, libraries, shops and attractions. It is a must-see in the city of Mexico.
