  • Decorated with murals by Diego Rivera library building looks very unusual and impressive. Is rather far from Metro station, but on campus go free buses for students, it can be reached here.

  • The UNAM (Universidad Nacional Autónoma de Mexico) is not only one of the biggest and most beautiful cities in Latin America, but is a symbol of the city and the country. The University City is as own Mexico City, vast and beautifully decorated murals. About 1000 buildings (138 are libraries) give good faith of this and include three: the Central Library (giant cube with its four sides showing on murals is one of the most significant buildings of the city), the Tower of the rectory (with the unique murals of Siqueiros), and the University Olympic Stadium (built almost 75 years ago It has already hosted an Olympic Games, two World Championships of soccer and two Pan American Championships, but the futuristic vision that was built makes that keep it looking completely modern). Declared world heritage by Unesco, is worth the honor of two links with Spain: was born following the model of the University of Salamanca (current UNAM dates back to 1910, but it has as a predecessor to the Royal and Pontifical University of Mexico founded in 1551, in times of Felipe II) was Prince of Asturias Award for communication and Humanities in 2011. And so says his shield: "My spirit will speak for my race".

  • Historic building with incredible murals and one of the best selections of Latin American literature anywhere in the world.
  • We visited this campus to see the UNAM biblioteca. We got excited by this university campus, so well organised with beautiful buildings. The murals of the biblioteca are breathtaking.
  • Lots of books. History, Geography, Cartography, Politics, Economics, Medicine...
  • The facade is unbeatable. O'Gorman does it again.
  • great wall art
