Xochimilco and UNAM University

Xochimilco, Mexico


Discover the southern part of Mexico City. Follow Insurgentes, the world´s largest avenue, passing the Cibeles Fountain, Poliforum Siqueiros, and Plaza de Toros, until you arrive at the campus of the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM). In fact, the latter is listed as World Heritage. So, Admire its famous murals and sculptures, made by artists such as Diego de Rivera. The Campus of the University, built between 1950 and 1954, embodies one of the most emblematic developments of modern Mexican architecture. You will also see the Olympic Stadium of 1968, with a mural by Diego Rivera.

Your next destination will be Xochimilco, one of the most picturesque and colorful areas of Mexico City. It is one of the last remaining vestiges of the old Aztec capital of Tenochtitlán. This beautiful place is characterized by its canals, floating gardens with lovely flowers, and brightly decorated “trajineras”. These are considered the traditional Mexican equivalent of a gondola. Enjoy the lively atmosphere on the canals while mariachi serenade you, floating kitchens offer you food, and flower-vendors tempt you with their colorful bouquets. An unforgettable experience!
