What you'll do

We will have the opportunity to know vestiges of all kinds (government buildings, houses, palaces, murals, pyramids, decorations, squares, markets, etc.) each belonging to the three different epochs of Mexico: the pre-Hispanic era, the colonial era and the Time of splendor of Independent Mexico.
We will see each other at the main entrance of the Iron Palace of the Historic Center where I will give you a general introduction of the city. Later we will begin to walk and discover the recesses that the CDMX keeps for us.
We will know the Museum of Mexico City, the Hospital de Jesús (the oldest in the continent), National Palace, the Metropolitan Cathedral and the Colegio de San Ildefonso. Then we will walk along Av. Francisco I. Madero, and I will tell you the stories of emblematic buildings and streets, such as: Museo del Estanquillo, the Churches of “La Profesa” and San Felipe de Jesús, the Sanborns de los Azulejos and the Spanish Casino . We will also visit the three palaces that the Porfiriato left us: Post Office, Fine Arts and the MUNAL, and the oldest park of the CDMX: the Alameda.
The museums that we will visit are of the most extensive variety, since Mexico City is the “2nd City with the most Museums in the World”.

Meet your host, Santiago

Host on Airbnb since 2017
  • Identity verified
I am a Chilango (gentilicio for the people of Mexico City) who is passionate about discovering, every day, a new recess within the capital of Mexico.
Little by little I became interested in the history of my city, until I ended up understanding it and seeing it as an entity, to which the word that best describes it is: Evolution.
I am an expert in the subject and I maintain direct contact with the great chroniclers of the CDMX.
In addition, I have a YouTube channel in which I tell the little-known stories of buildings, streets, squares, restaurants and even characters that shaped our city.
I can describe myself as a lover of History, Culture and Tea. I love traveling, I dominate the social talk and I love meeting new people. Showing the city from another perspective, from the perspective of a local.
