Embark on a journey that intertwines the ancient mystique of Aztec waterways with the timeless beauty of Spanish colonial architecture. This self-guided audio tour is designed for explorers eager to experience Mexico City's rich past through its iconic sites at their own pace. Starting at the UNAM Central Library with its breathtaking mural, you'll dive into stories of Mexico's history before moving towards colonial landmarks and vibrant markets. Your adventure takes you from the scholarly halls of the National Autonomous University of Mexico to the historical avenues of Coyoacan, where Hernán Cortés once walked. The route leads you to marvel at the San Juan Bautista Church, Casa de Cultura, and the Fountain of the Coyotes, before it steers you towards the tranquil waters of Xochimilco. Here, on the Nativitas Boat Dock, you'll find the traditional trajineras waiting to carry you along the ancient Aztec canals. The highlight of your tour will undoubtedly be the enchanting boat ride in Xochimilco, where you'll glide past gardens and witness a living tapestry of Mexico's vibrant culture. The scent of fresh flowers from the market and the sight of the serene San Bernardino Church will linger in your memory, as these timeless experiences encapsulate the spirit of Mexico City.
