Chapultepec Castle (in Spanish: Castillo de Chapultepec) is the only real royal castle in all of the Americas. Built during colonial Spanish times, it is on a hill in Chapultepec Park, a sacred part of Mexico City going back to Aztec times. Today, it is one of the largest city parks in the Western Hemisphere.

Gerardo Jáuregui says:

You just visited the Imperial Palace (I know is a castle but durig the 2nd Empire served as official home for the Emperor, so it was remodeled to be a Palace) that was home of H.M. Maximiliano I of Mexico, Emperor during the short 2nd Empire of Mexico from 1864 to 1867. Then it was home to Presidents when the Republic was reinstalled. Some think that a Constitutional Monarchy would’ve been much more benefic to Mexico than the Republic, I think that too.

Carlos Sánchez says:

The statue you saw after loosing Victor is José Maria Morelos y Pavón. He was one of the fighters during the independence of Mexico. He lead the independence movement after Miguel Hidalgo, the priest who started it, was executed. He is also known for establishing the initial ideas that shaped the country: like abolishing slavery, law applied to everyone without privileges, division of power, etc. Google "Sentimientos de la nación" if you are interested in them.

Mi Gerry says:

Actually during the Mexican American war, there is a legend that says that a kid defending Mexico threw himself with the Mexican Flag from the top of the castle
