Mexico City

This city hall in the south of the city is famous for being a refuge for intellectuals and artists. Its center preserves the bohemian air that made people like León Trotsky, Emilio “El Indio” Fernández, Salvador Novo and Salvador Elizondo fall in love, who chose this neighborhood to live, be inspired and inherit -in many cases-, their residences as historical treasures open to the public. A public, who today can tour their rooms as guests and spectators.

One of the main attractions of this magical neighborhood is the Frida Kahlo Museum, known as “La Casa Azul”. You can tour the home of the painter and be transported to another time.

You will also enjoy part of her wardrobe, almost unknown works and those that have been around the world. Something that not everyone knows is that the artist's ashes rest in this place in an urn in her room. Don't miss out the charm that this magical and memorable place holds.

The former residence of the Russian politician Leon Trotsky, is another museum that you cannot miss. The collection holds posters, documents, and furniture as they were used while he lived there.

An interesting fact is that you can also see the study where he was assassinated, which over the years has become a scene that, although it looks like a set up. It is not. His belongings remained intact from that tragic day.

If you are a lover of cinematography, you must visit La Cineteca Nacional. This building dedicates itself to highlights of international filmography. You will have the opportunity to enjoy films that you could only see during film festivals.

Take full advantage of its interior, even for romantic plans, as there are cafes, bars, bookstores and even an outdoor screen where they project free special functions that you can see from the comfort of its garden.
