Mexico City Spotlight: Diego Rivera Mural in Alameda Park

'Dream of a Sunday Afternoon in Alameda' is a masterpiece not to be missed.

Discover one of Diego Rivera’s last pieces of art in the outskirts of Alameda Park. Surrounded by a crowd of street vendors, the low building may be difficult to find right away, but don’t give up because it is one of the painter’s most interesting work. “Dream of a Sunday Afternoon in Alameda” is a mural in which different characters of Mexican history are brought together with the park as a background.

Sit down, observe and take your time to discover all the characters in the piece: Spanish conquerers, Aztec emperors, revolutionaries and even a Day of the Dead “catrina” strolling through the city’s oldest park. Oh, and don't miss Frida.
