Beyond the continuous hustle and bustle that characterizes the capital of Mexico, there’s always something new that transforms this city into a magical place.

Very often, unexpected pieces of art pop up on the streets and manage to surprise locals and visitors with their colorful forms and themes that usually bring a smile to anyone who spares a second or a minute from their usually tight schedule.

A recent example of this was an installation presented in different areas of the city by Guitar Town. Thanks to this initiative several 3-meter high guitars showed around the city different characteristics of the Mexican culture, both ancient and modern.

The guitars are gone now, but the photos and the good memories that these unique pieces of art brought to many people will remain for a long while.
