One of the crucial cultural centres of Mexico, the Palacio de Bellas Artes (Palace of Fine Arts) is an impressive building in the historic centre of Mexico City. It is a hub for Mexican culture, hosting many exhibitions and theatrical performances year-round.
The building is a display of neoclassical architecture, its design drawing upon inspiration from the Art Deco and Art Nouveau styles. It was originally built in 1904, and was inaugurated in 1934. It has been referred to as the 'cathedral of art in Mexico', and was listed as an UNESCO artistic monument in 1987.
The venue itself holds performances and exhibitions from an array of genres, including music, arts, dance, literature and theatre. Some of the particularly notable events include the Ballet Folklórico de México, the Compania Nacional de Opera and the National Symphonic Orchestra - each of whom perform regularly, as well as performances by Luciano Pavarotti and Frida Kahlo exhibitions.
