First, we will visit the Dolores Olmedo Museum in the south of the city. Dolores Olmedo was a very wealthy businesswoman who had a close relationship with the famous artist Diego Rivera.

She made sure that Diego and Frida Kahlo´s legacy would be safe with her and today their largest art collection is kept in the museum. She also gave her personal touch to the place. She loved animals, specially the Xoloitzcuincle dog (a hairless unique Mexican breed). She knew the importance that this breed had for the Pre-Hispanic people and decided to look after many of them.

The Museum is not an ordinary place; it was a huge ranch with a sixteenth century church that today is considered a historical monument. Walk around the museum and enjoy its gardens with colorful peacocks everywhere, Diego´s paintings and its wonderful architecture.

Next, we´ll head to the historical and bohemian neighborhood of Coyoacan where you will learn about the first religious catholic orders that arrived in 1524. The Franciscans built the monastery of San Juan Bautista in the south of Mexico City and the evangelization process started.

In Coyoacan you can try a hot chocolate and traditional churros filled with different sweet flavors as we walk around the colorful colonial streets.
