El Jardín del Alcázar

"Construir castillos con terrazas ajardinadas", fue la definición de felicidad que Maximiliano expresó en alguna ocasión. Profundo conocedor de la arquitectura y la jardinería palaciegas de su época, y aficionado a la botánica, en la terraza del Castillo encontró un sitio para hacer realidad su sueño. Alrededor de este jardín íntimo, bordeado por corredores con techos ligeros sostenidos sobre delgadas columnas de hierro, Maximiliano escuchaba y dictaba su correspondencia. Al igual que en los palacios europeos de la época, el jardín interior se integraba visualmente a un parque exterior, aquí el bosque de Chapultepec. English translation:"To build castles with roof gardens" was the definition of happiness Maximilian expressed on at least one occasion. Connoisseur of architecture and the palace gardens of his time, and also an amateur botanist, on the terrace of the castle he found a place to realize his dream. Around this intimate garden bordered by corridors with lightweight roofs supported on slender iron columns, Maximiliano listened to visitors and dictated correspondence. As in European palaces of the time, the inner garden is visually integrated to the outside, here Chapultepec Forest.
