Avenida Francisco Sosa is the main street of Coyoacán, a neighborhood that stands out from the rest of the city for its traditional and colorful atmosphere. Originally, it was part of the pre-Hispanic road network of the city and, once the Spanish gained control over the area, it was included into the new urban trace. This means that Avenida Francisco Sosa is a street with more than 500 years of history.
There you will find one of the few colonial bridges that are still standing, the Fonoteca Nacional (a music library) with its lovely garden, Plaza Santa Catarina, and the great churros of Churrería General de la República. One of my favorite spots of this street is Aurelia, a café inside a cultural center (called Jesús Reyes Heroles) where I always enjoy the pleasant environment that is there.
Take your time to walk along this lovely street and discover what it hides behind its heavy trees and colorful façades.
