Visit Coyoacan in the morning to enjoy an authentic coffee and feel the tranquility and the magic of its environment. Visit in the afternoon and enjoy its artistic and vibrant colors; or enjoy the sounds, the music and its secluded corners, along with the charming streets, alleys and iconic sites surrounded by New Spanish baroque houses, cultural centers, restaurants, bookstores and galleries.

VISIT THE JEWELS OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD
Cross the San Antonio Panzacola Bridge, one of the few viceregal bridges that has been preserved, and enter the San Juan Bautista church and convent, one of the oldest temples of the Valley of Mexico, as well as the Conchita chapel, which is considered a jewel of baroque art.

WALK THE PLAZA AND ENJOY THE COYOTE SCULPTURES
Admire and photograph the entryway to the Plaza de Coyoacan with its double arch, built in the mid-16th century, as well as the coyote sculptures in the square, surrounded by artisans who weave textiles or make bracelets and earrings.

BE SURPRISED BY THE MUSEUMS
Coyoacan has housed numerous Mexican intellectuals and refugees from other countries of the world such as Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo and Leon Trotsky, whose houses have become museums that illustrate part of their legacy and way of life.
The Watercolor Museum is, without a doubt, a must-see visit. It offers a permanent exhibition on the history of watercolor in the country.
