I walked the entire length of the street on my own after visiting the Frida Kahlo Museum. The architecture is colorful, manicured + charming. Beautiful painted address tiles and signage. Fruit carts on the street to eat as you walk. Nice cafes and park. This street has a charming old world Mexico vibe!

Coyoacan's historic center and nearby neighborhoods are filled with homes built from the colonia era to the middle of the 20th century, many of which have been catalogued for their historic value. Many of these homes can be found on two of the historic center’s oldest streets: Higuera and Francisco Sosa. One of the most important of these structures is... More

We walked from the Mercado Sabado in San Angel along Francisco Sosa all the way to Coyoacan. My favorite day in Mexico City!

Francisco Sosa avenue is a pretty street lined with single or double storey colonial homes that recall the times when the district was a city. Some of the buildings are quite historic and go back to the 17th century. The street is narrow and lined with trees, with narrow sidewalks that are in need of repair in many places. It... More

The street and neighbornood was filled with homes that were very nice and looked... More

All Coyoacan area is awesome and architecture is great. The central plaza is within a walking distance. Colonial style is preserved in all the area with ancient houses, all well preserved.

A great way to discover Coyoacan is to take this avenue West to East and then sit at a cafe on the main plaza. This is one of the oldest colonial street in Latin America, don't miss it if you go to San Angel or Coyoacan, it is just in between.

I happened upon this street by chance in my efforts to find the Casa Azul. It is a beautiful, quiet street. The houses have colorful, old-time designs. Taking this street will lead you to the beautiful Colonia Coyoacan. It has a wonderful, small-town feel to it. It is a peaceful, beautiful walk.

Staying in Coyoacan

Neighbourhood Profile
Once you step into Coyoacán (“Land of the Coyotes”) you'll find picturesque parks and cantinas that will transport you back to the colonial era thanks to the brick and stone details of the area. Iconic writers such as Trotsky and great painters like Frida Kahlo seeked refuge and inspiration in this area, and you can see the unique spirit of this neighborhood reflected in its colorful market where nieves, sopes and all kinds of traditional 'antojitos' are a must try. Restaurants and cafés throughout its peaceful paved streets contain traditional but unique murals and decorations, where one can enjoy a mezcal at noon or the best churros with a cup of coffee.
