COMBI CITY TOUR: THE LEGENDS IN MEXICO CITY
We will begin our panoramic tour by visiting the nurseries of Coyocan declared a national park, it started in the 20th century with the effort of the engineer Miguel Ángel de Quevedo, which currently consists of 39 hectares where different types of plants are grown. Then we will continue along the “old royal road” that communicates San Ángel and Coyocan neighborhoods, today this road is one of the most representative avenues named “Francisco Sosa” where picturesque houses of colonial architecture are located including the house of Jesus Reyes Heroles; in this house (according to the legend) a Little blonde girl “appears” and plays all night long in the courtyard.
Later we will visit one of the most emblematic alleys of the site “el Callejon del Aguacate” (Avocado Alley) where you will hear one of the most emblematic legends of the Coyocan neighborhood.
Continuing with the tour, we are getting to the Plaza de la Conchita which is located, one of the oldest chapels built in the 16th century by orders of Hernán Cortés. It is said that, in La Conchita (iconic church of Coyocan), a monk appears and transits between dimensions crossing the walls inside the construction. We will visit the historical square of Coyocan “monument of coyotes”, the church of San Juan Bautista”, the old palace; one of Hernán Cortés’ houses where the legend of “the child of the old palace” will be told. Free time for a coffee at the Jarocho coffee shop before ending our tour with a panoramic visit to the famous “Blue House” where the painter Frida Kahlo spent her last years of life (just a few streets away from the house of Leon Trotsky).
