This charming area, about 10 kilometers south of downtown Mexico City, feels light years away from the hustle and bustle of the city. We begin our visit at the quaint main square, surrounded by restaurants, book shops and boutiques. The 16th century San Juan Bautista Church on the Hidalgo Plaza is our first stop.
From there, we can customize your tour, since there are many sites worth visiting:
-The National Museum of Popular Cultures
-Conchita Plaza, where Hernan Cortes retreated after conquering Mexico City
-The Handicraft Market and nearby Food Market
-Frida Kahlo’s Blue House – where Frida grew up, rendezvoused with famous people of her time (including Andre Breton and Leon Trotsky), and had her art studio. Frida’s childhood home has been converted into a museum showcasing a vast collection of her personal treasures and writings, while respecting living spaces that the artist and her famous Mexican muralist husband, Diego Rivera shared. Part of the movie Frida was filmed on-site here.
-The Trotsky Museum, where the Soviet ideologist spent his last days in exile and was assassinated.
There is a large variety of sites in the zone to chose from, depending on your interests.
We can make suggestions to put together an unforgettable 3 hour tailor-made tour, suited to your needs.
