The word Coyoacan as we know today, comes from the Nahuatl word “Coyohuacan”, whose mostly accepted meaning is “The place of the coyotes” composed of three Nahua voices: coyotl (coyote), hua (possession) and can (place).
Subject of color and tradition, Coyoacan is an attractive landmark for national and international tourism. In fact, it is one of the areas of greatest concurrence among the residents of Mexico City every weekend.
Coyoacan is a place where tradition is combined masterfully with popular legends, a colorful place that comes alive through its charm and a mystical atmosphere that captures the attention and appreciation of its visitors.
Many pages of Mexican history were written in Coyoacan, even since the time of the Conquest, when Hernán Cortés himself was enchanted by the beauty and charm of “Malinalli” (La Malinche).
Nowadays you can be part of that charm when walking through its beautiful streets and alleys whit its popular references of myths and legends. When walking through Coyoacan’s downtown, the Hidalgo Garden and La Parroquia de San Juan Bautista, the surrounding baroque architecture contributes to the colonial attributes of the site, which dates back to the 16th and 17th centuries. Today, these locations have been converted into terraces, restaurants, cafes and museums. A particular example is “Casa Azul”, one of the most visited museums in the country which was the place of residence of Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera, icons of Mexican contemporary art and culture.
Another remarkable personality of Coyoacan was Octavio Paz, Nobel Prize for Literature in 1990, who enjoyed long walks in the area and spent his last days at Casa Alvarado (today the National Music Library), an old building located in one of the most beautiful streets of Mexico City, Francisco Sosa, in the Barrio of Santa Catarina.
Coyoacan is a place trapped in time that captures the interest and love of travelers. It has always been a place of inspiration for art, painting, photography and music, as well as for intellectuals of all ages.
