Inside the palace there are murals painted by Diego Rivera, they were painted between 1929 and 1945. His México a Través de los Siglos (Mexico Through the Centuries), on the main stairwell leading to the first floor, depicts every major event and person of Mexican history, from Cortés’ conquest of the Aztecs and Mexico to the Mexican Revolution, all with Rivera’s typical Marxist twist. The most famous being the "Epic of the Mexican People in their Struggle for Freedom and Independence", which condenses two thousand years of history onto the space of a wall.

Our favorite is "The Legend of Quetzalcoatl" which shows the famous tale of the feathered serpent bringing a blond-bearded white man to the country.

When Cortés first arrived, many Aztecs, recalling this legend, believed him to be Quetzalcoatl. Soon they realized that he was anything but this beloved god.

Another mural tells of the American Intervention when American invaders marched into Mexico City during the War of 1847. It was on this occasion that the military cadets of Chapultepec Castle (then a military school) fought bravely to the last man. The most notable of Rivera's murals is the Great City of Tenochtitlán, a study of the original settlement in the Valley of Mexico.

A monument honouring Benito Juarez is on the ground floor. The residence and momentos of Benito Juarez are also on display.

This building seems to contain countless rooms, wide stone stairways, and many courtyards which are adorned with carved brass balconies.

You can even see the semicircular Chamber of Deputies which was the seat of representative government in the middle of the 19th century.

As we have said, the office of the President Of Mexico has been moved and it is now at Chapultepec Park.

The presidents new address is:

Presidente de los Estados Unidos Mexicanos
Residencia Oficial de "Los Pinos"
Col. San Miguel Chapultepec
México D.F., C.P. 11850
MÉXICO
