Located in the colourful Coyoacán district in the south of Mexico City is the Frida Kahlo Museum. Known as the 'blue house', it was the home of one the one most important Mexican artists of all time. Frida Kahlo was born and lived there with her husband and fellow artists Diego Rivera for 25 years and inside we find examples of her noted artwork, as well as unique pieces of folk art and the folk dresses Frida Kahlo habitually wore herself.

Although still in the sprawling city, Coyoacan presents the illusion of being in a small town, with a busy market at weekends, where local people come to enjoy a stroll in the park. Nearby are restaurant, cafes, mariachi bands and some excellent cakes for sale.
