Lonely Planet review

Built for colonial nobility, in 1821 this became the residence of General Agustín Iturbide, a hero of the struggle for independence who was proclaimed emperor here in 1822. (He abdicated less than a year later, after General Santa Anna announced the birth of a republic.) Now known as the Museo Palacio Cultural Banamex, it hosts exhibits drawn from the bank’s vast Mexican art collection.
