Join us for a leisurely stroll along one of the cobblestoned streets of Coyoacan, a quaint neighborhood in southern Mexico City, visiting several overlooked sites including the city’s sole Watercolor Museum, the National Sound Archives, two cultural centers, Santa Catarina Plaza which gives this area its name. We’ll manage to fit in a little shopping, stopping at a few upscale food-related stores (one gourmet chocolate shop, an upscale homemade ice cream stand and a a wine shop). As we walk, we will narrate the history of the zone as well as the lives of many famous people who lived on these street, including a Nobel Prize winner, a Mexican president and a British archaeologist. You will get a real feel for the atmosphere so typical of Coyoacan, taking in the colonial architecture and actually having the opportunity to go inside what were several palatial estates.
This walking tour takes three hours.
