  • The Universidad Nacional Autónoma of México (UNAM), is an interesting place for those who do tourist visit to Mexico City, is located to the South of the city and it is easy to reach it either taking the metro (line 3, green) in address University or also using the bus that runs along the avenida insurgentes sur, perhaps the point more iconic of CU (as it is known) is your library which has a reach of the impressive mosaic, is right opposite Recotoria and crossing the avenida de Los Insurgentes is also the Olympic Stadium University where is made the Mexico Olympics 68 and is also home to PUMAS, football team of the UNAM, definitely one place to visit.

  • Believe me friends that not only is the size of the surface that occupies our maximum House of studies that it makes large, there are countless aspects that it make truly beautiful. From the enormous academic prestige that characterizes it, until its facilities. If they come to visit it there are several means of public transport to get from metrobus or metro, green line, direction Indians Verdes-Universidad, and I prefer to get me at the station Coplico and walk. Don't forget to visit your library or the Museum Universum, for which must take a bus that is located in the internal circuit of the University, very comprehensive indeed his newspaper. The type of soil on which this built University is volcanic and this gives an unusual beauty to the walk. Has a stadium of football, known as Stadium Olympic Mexico 1968, and receives this name because was headquarters in the Olympics of that year. This stadium is home to Pumas of the UNAM and to attend matches of this team would be worthwhile to go to the official Internet site or the of the Mexican Football Federation to review the calendar of games, dates and times, but usually they play on Sunday. If you visit the city of Mexico, don't miss this important place... Luck
