Coyoacán Things to Do: 23 reviews and 58 photos

Along the Avenida Francisco Sosa you will find some of the most beautiful homes in Coyoacan. These have been retored to look as they did in the Colonial era. You can walk for a few blocks and imagine what it used to be like back in that time. The streets are cobblestone, there are trees everywhere amd the homes are beautiful.
Most of the homes have names and they carry the coat of arms of the original families that used to live here. Some house have the family name on them and others have a shrine to the Virgen Mary.
We took a stroll along these streets and it was so peaceful. People (locals) were walking their dogs. Everyone that you passed said good morning.
Some of the homes had the little hoops on the wall where they used to tie up their horses. These are very old homes with so much character and elegance. Walking around here takes you back in time.
