It is more impressive than its pictures. It is more than a wall. It is more than a work of art. It is art plus history plus mythology. Either go there with a good guide or read the meaning of the details before you go.

This is a world UNESCO sight and so it deserves to be! Best experienced with a guide who can shared the importance of this building and the others, this public and free university is a great stop.

UNAM is a university campus. As such, it is not set up as a tourist site with paths, markings, etc. The buildings are far apart, set up and located for their individual functions. Tourism is not one of them. We started with the iconic library...More

Our guide added a special bonus of a visit to the Ciudad Universitaria. The 10 story block on stilts encrusted with mosaics designed by Juan O'Gorman and Rivera's contribution is simply stunning.
