Madero Street where we’ll appreciate colonial and modern architecture as Palacio de Iturbide, Convento de San Francisco, Casa de los Azulejos, Torre Latinoamericana; and Plaza Tolsá where Museo Nacional de Arte, Palacio de Minería and Oficina Postal are. Finally, in Bellas Artes Palace, we'll appreciate its architecture, and paints of mexican Muralismo period, which is represented by artists such as Rivera, Siqueiros, Tamayo, and others. Inside all of these monuments there’s a great history, anecdotes and interesting legends to count and that we'll enjoy a lot.

I’m a professional person, I studied an undergraduate and a master in Archaeology, and a specialization in Art History, in recognized universities in Mexico. For 20 years, I've worked by public institutions in academic and researching field in Mexico City, Nuevo León, Michoacan, Hidalgo and Chiapas; and I've collaborated in archaeological projects with international universities in USA and France. I'm very proud of mexican culture, I'm a passionate about archaeology and history of my country, and I like to learn about culture of other countries as well. I'm interested about cave art, iconography and art from all around the world, not only of Mexico. I'm a friendly person, wherever I go, I like to meet people, and share my customs, thoughts and personal experiences. This is a way to create a link with people and begin a friendship.
