The iconic photography spots in Mexico City

Chaputlepec Castle

Chaputlepec Castle is known as the only castle in North America to ever house actual sovereigns. This happened during the Second Mexican Empire in the mid-1800s. Now, the beautiful building is the National Museum of Cultures.

Come for the museum artifacts, or just for the structure itself. Chaputlepec Castle has also famously appeared in several films, including Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo and Juliet, so you know it has to be romantic. Maybe that’s why it was the perfect location for this engagement shoot!

La Casa Azul

The Frida Kahlo Museum and The Blue House is a must to add to your itinerary. It is perfect for photos and just for fun, as you explore the life of one of the world’s best artists. Pre-book a visit and try to go during the earlier morning hours, so you don’t have other travelers mucking up your photos.

Museo Soumaya

An art gallery, Museo Soumaya is the place to go for a visually interesting backdrop that features an outdoor, geometric facade. The sleek, slim, and metallic building glitters in the sunlight and makes for an interesting contrast to some of Mexico City’s more historic scenery.

Palacio Postal

You’ve never seen a post office like this. Mexico City’s central post office is absolutely gorgeous. The interior features opulent marble staircases, loads of natural sunlight, and gold practically dripping from the walls.
