When you go up the main stairs, coming from the courtyard, you’ll see a very big wall painting. It shows a part of the Mexican history, like the Aztec period, the Colonial period, the French occupation, the Mexican revolution . . .
Unfortunately, it was very dark at that place and it was prohibited to use a flash, so I was not able to make a picture of this masterpiece. The picture I added here is one of the many frescos you can see on the sidewalk at the first floor.

My guidebook said that one needs to show some ID to enter the Palacio, but we just walked in without showing anything, or maybe another possibility is the fact that we visited the Palacio as a group and that earlier our tour guide made the necessary arrangements, I don’t know. But if you want to enter without problems, carry your passport with you, so if they ask you can show it to heavily armed guards. By the way these guards do not like to be photographed. If you want a picture of these guards, ask authorization first.
The courtyard is built in a typical Spanish style. The Palacio Nacional is built on the same place were once stood the Palace of Moctezuma, were Herman Cortez has lived after he had conquered Mexico.
