NEIGHBORHOODS · Close to the center, discover a bohemian oasis, a refuge of artists with a leisurely pace and cosmopolitan atmosphere


Visit Coyoacán and find a place full of history, charm and legends. From the time of Hernán Cortés until today, visitors from around the world have been captivated by the beauty of the place. Coyoacán was a haven for artists; Octavio Paz walked these streets and here is the birthplace of Frida Kahlo and Leon Trotsky House Museum.

The center of Coyoacán is marked by the Jardín Hidalgo, in what was the old courtyard of the former convent and parish of San Juan Bautista surrounded by colonial buildings of the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries, such as the Diego de Ordaz House and Casa Municipal, Seat of the first council of the Valle de México. In the square intellectuals and students, families and onlookers gather. It always exudes a relaxed atmosphere, it is a meeting place for coffees, meals and gatherings on the terraces of restaurants, snacks in the market or in one of the most traditional pubs in town.

A short walk takes you to the Plaza de la Conchita, with its temple and picturesque buildings. Further, in what was the old Camino Real (now Calle Francisco Sosa), there is the Casa de Alvarado which houses the National Sound Archive, the casa Italiana de Cultura and the Jesus Reyes Heroles Culture House. and, of course, you can replenish your energy in the beautiful Viveros de Coyoacán.
