in detail

Two of the most amazing destinations in Mexico City are located in Coyoacán: the Coyoacán neighborhood and Ciudad Universitaria, the campus of the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México. Two seemingly unrelated places, but they somehow share the same essence.

Coyoacán has always been a magical place. Hernán Cortés decided to settle here with la Malinche. Artists and intellectuals come from here or came here, such as Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo and Octavio Paz. The village took shape around the exconvento de San Juan Bautista. Colonial buildings, palaces and mansions are spread throughout the center of the region; while Viveros de Coyoacán offers a greener counterpoint.

Maybe it was in the cafes of Coyoacán where the great intellectuals of the time shaped the great project of Ciudad Universitaria, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A space that took Mexican identity as a reference point, because knowing where we came from is necessary to trace where do we want to go.

Besides this cultural focus, Coyoacán maintains a strong cultural offering with 20 museums, some which shouldn't be missed, such as the Museo de Frida Kahlo, the Museo Diego Rivera "Anahuacalli", the Museo Casa de León Trotsky, the Museo de Culturas Populares, Museo de las Intervenciones, Museo Nacional de la Acuarela, the Centro Nacional de las Artes and the Casa Fortaleza of the film maker Emilio “El Indio” Fernández.
