La magia

If there is a place in Mexico City where we can get lost in time it is Coyoacán. On a bright sunny January morning I discovered Coyoacán. I walked through its streets and visited its beautiful squares. I watched people passing through the Garden of the Coyotes and I walked to the Arches of the old courtyard of the Church of San Juan Bautista. From there I walked along Avenida Francisco Sosa where every house, every door, every corner and every alley is one surprise after another. Several names have taken this road from Camino Real, Paseo de las Damas (because it paraded the girls looking Beau), Avenida Juarez to its current name. Returning to the Church of San Juan Bautista decided to get into it, not the first time I visit but each time gives me new feelings. Despite being one of the first churches built in America, by Spanish missionaries in the sixteenth century, its beauty is striking, the altarpieces, paintings and sunlight entering through the windows at that hour of the morning. I could not leave that place without visiting the Convent, in whose courtyard found orange trees, roses, pine strange mixture with palm trees. To continue my journey followed by Higuera Street to the Plaza de la Conchita. When I saw her walk through some of the entries people cleaning their houses and the owners of the shops opening their premises, they all showed in their faces the pride of living in this place. Coming to the Plaza de la Conchita I was transported in time as to sit in the pews of reddish stone, I could see the little chapel ivory which the story was built as a gift for your lover Hernán Cortés, Doña Marina known as "La Malinche". The stone cross is in the middle of the garden gives an air of mysticism that led me to meditation ..... Camilos Parent activity that developed in the seventeenth century in his convent-Posada, which is located on the south side of this square.

Bohemian feel in mexico city

I got ot know Coyoacán taking a tour bus which stopped at the southern circuit, and we had only 12 hours to get to seeas much as possible of the vast Mexico City. But I left wanting more. Walking through its narrow streets, colonial houses and looking into the house of Frida Kalo, which is the blue photo. Coyoacán is one of the zones of the city where you can see the colonial legacy, as if a few decades ago a village on the outskirts of the city, is now fully within it, but still retains its traditional character, which together with its lovely squares, streets and houses, has attracted a big number of artists, which has given this area a nice bohemian feel.
