Neighborhood Shopping Mall
Best described as a small town within a giant city, Coyoacan represents the historical center of one of Mexico City's 16 boroughs. The sprawling city swallowed up this area in the early 20th century, incorporating the surrounding farms and forests into a pleasant urban neighborhood. The district consists of about 30 city blocks, intersected by narrow cobblestoned streets and dotted with small plazas laid out during the colonial period. Home to mostly residential buildings, the neighborhood manages to retain much of its bohemian character and relaxed atmosphere despite its growing popularity with foreign tourists. Don't miss the area's main church, built in the 16th century. Our Mexico City trip itinerary maker makes visiting Coyoacan and other Mexico City attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
