Private Mexico City South Tour


Private tour to visit the Blue House where Frida was born, grew up and lived the major part of her life. A visit to the House-Studio of Diego and Frida, composed by two houses, within them we can see their bedrooms and their workshops, showing how these two artists used to live and work. It's a must-see place for art and architecture lovers who are visiting the city.
At Mexico City's southern extreme, the Dolores Olmedo Museum houses her art collection including a lot of paintings by Diego and some by Frida. Dolores Olmedo created a cohesive whole, where treasures of the fine arts were incorporated into colonial construction added during the Seventeenth Century, surrounded by lush gardens, shaded by singularly Mexican plant species, and inhabited by gorgeous animals like the magical peacocks-seemingly confected of living jewels and the enigmatic hairless Xoloiztcuintle dogs, a Precolumbian breed that is unique.
