Experience the history of the Second Mexican Empire like a Mexican soap opera with this unique audio walk that tells you the tragic love story of Emperor Maximilian of Habsburg and Empress Carlotta. Chapultepec Castle was built in 1785, but 80 years after its construction, the Emperors of Mexico arrived. This soundwalk is narrated by a telenovela producer, Adela Salinas. Let your imagination run wild as you listen to the 3D sound effects and the narration of one of the most famous love stories in Mexican history. As you explore the rooms and antiques inside the castle, you'll learn about the Battle of Chapultepec and the Hall of Carriages, among other things. Adela tells the tragic love story full of betrayal and passion in a unique "soap opera" style, until the moment when the couple is led out of the castle by Benito Juarez's troops. The tour ends with you learning the tragedy of Carlotta, who went mad and left Maximilian all alone in Mexico.

It was about 5 miles from Central Historic area. Uber is best. The Walk up the hill to get to the Castle(palace) was difficult. But worth it. No cars allowed. No english audio or sinage.the collection nice. Small jewelry was my favorite. I don’t know the history so the palace was great with the best views. The park is huge. Call first forbother museums. Many closed. Over 60 is free.
Visita ok para ir!

Edificação histórica e linda! O acesso é um pouco ruim, já que temos que subir uma extensa rampa. O museu tem mais representações e objetos da época, e além disso uma bonita vista da cidade e do bosque!
