Downtown Walking Tour of Madero Street

A walk along the pedestrian street of Madero provides a glimpse into the layout, architecture and history of downtown Mexico. We will begin our stroll along the southern side of the Alameda Park, in front of the Palace of Fine Arts, making over half a dozen stops to see emblematic buildings (from the outside and inside) ranging from what is left of the San Francisco Convent Complex (originally the first and largest religious site in all of the hemisphere) to what were a few residential palaces (today repurposed into restaurants, museums, hotels, posh shops, etc.). We will have the opportunity to visit a few small, specialized museums as well, ending our visit in the Zocalo, Mexico City’s main square.

This leisurely tour will last about 3 hours.
