The times of the President, General Porfirio Diaz; Don Porfirio Diaz lived in the Castle of Chapultepec, he has a french-european-alike court; he was the one who ordered the construction of the "National Theater" (Today: "Palace of Fine Arts"); the music and the culture were at his highest expression.
Look how beautiful was Mexico.
