Bravo's 'Mexican Dynasties' Is Shining a Spotlight on Mexico City

By Allison Cacich

For their latest reality show, Mexican Dynasties, Bravo heads south of the border to follow the Allende, Bessudo, and Madrazo families as they "challenge stereotypes, raise a few eyebrows, and proudly showcase their over-the-top lifestyles."

Although the series just premiered on Feb. 26, this eccentric group of characters already has us hooked — particularly Oscar and Paulina Madrazo. But what elevates Mexican Dynasties above its U.S. counterpart, the Real Housewives franchise, is the vibrant and celebrated culture of its setting: Mexico City. 

Here’s what viewers need to know about the location that inspired Bravo’s newest hit.

Where is Mexican Dynasties filmed?

The series is filmed in Mexico City, and each of the three families featured on the show has a long history with the capital. The Allendes are known as the "Entertainment Dynasty" thanks to patriarch Fernando, a famous actor, singer, and artist. His wife Mari works as his manager and their two sons, Elan and Adan, are aspiring musicians.
