Mexico City. Chapultepec Castle

 

Chapultepec Castle was founded in 1785 at the initiative of Viceroy Bernardo de Gálvez. Emperor Maximilian I of Mexico began to use the castle as his country seat chose in 1864. He hired several European and Mexican architects to replan and design the building in a neoclassical style. A garden was laid out on the castle’s roof. A straight boulevard now known as Paseo de la Reforma was constructed to connect the castle with the center of Mexico City. Later, an astronomical observatory was established at the castle. It was used as a presidential residence up to 1939. Chapultepec Castle is currently run by the National Museum of History.
