Culture in Mexico
Mexico’s cultural heritage is a unique blend of ancient Mayan culture and Spanish influences.
Hints of its Spanish past are evident in the dusty colonial towns and cities provide beautiful plazas and shady pueblos, while the various museums, galleries and archaeological attractions shed light on the more distant past.
The city of Guadalajara, is strewn with colonial plazas and landmarks. The neoclassical Teatro Degollado, a twin golden-spired cathedral, and The Palacio del Gobierno, which houses famous murals by painter José Clemente Orozco, are just a few of its' treasures.
Before your holiday in Mexico is over, be sure to check out Mexican folk art, which includes clay pottery, embroidered cotton garments, colourful baskets and rugs. For more colour, you need to become acquainted with Mexico’s most famous artists, Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera. You can view their work at the Frida Kahlo Museum and the Museum Dolores Olmedo, both in Mexico City.
