As if it were the portal to the past, it is easy to identify where this journey begins: on the avenue Patriotismo stands out the Plaza Goya and its streets with the names of painters. This small park that heads Calle Goya, a straight cobblestone that leads to the heart of one of the oldest and most traditional places of the CDMX, Mixcoac.
When entering this neighborhood ("serpent in the cloud" in Nahuatl), it is unlikely that the traces of the past of one of the first communities that were formed after the conquest will go unnoticed. During its first years of life, the inhabitants dedicated themselves to small industry, such as the manufacture of textiles and floriculture, to the production of corn, wheat, fruits and pulque, and to a peaceful country life; it seems that Mixcoac is the rural soul within the urban landscape.
From that time, the memories of the small neighborhood that came by tram to the Historic Center through the Mexico Avenue (today Revolution), of the picturesque area that, flanked by the Mixcoac River, began to generate its own identity when at the end of the 19th century, prevailed. thanks to its distance from the city, it became the resting place for wealthy families during the Porfirio Diaz. To live all these stories, just walk the streets of its current colonies: Extremadura Insurgentes, Mixcoac, Insurgentes Mixcoac, Nonoalco and San Juan, and feel the essence of the old Mixcoac. We present some of its most emblematic places.
Plaza Agustín Jáuregui Forum
At the intersection of Goya and Augusto Rodín, the current facilities of the Pan-American University, an old Mixcoac building during the 18th century and which, according to oral tradition, was the place where the writer José Fernández de Lizardi wrote the emblematic novel, are visible. mexican El periquillo sarniento.
Just in front, as a connector of interest is the Plaza Agustín Jáuregui Forum, whose name is reminiscent of Agustín Jáuregui, a liberal lawyer, neighbor of Mixcoac, who defended the zone of the conservative troops in 1856. With a reddish color, the square is adorned in its center by a kiosk, benches, trees and traditional businesses such as a stationery shop, an ice cream parlor and the Arcos building where you can have a coffee accompanied by a good reading.
Juan Rulfo Cultural Center
Right next to the Plaza Agustín Jáuregui Forum is the one that is considered the first cultural center of the CDMX: the Juan Rulfo Cultural Center. Inaugurated in 1975, it serves as a meeting point for the residents of the neighborhood. Here you can enjoy activities such as concerts, plays, literary talks or dance classes. Its Porfirian-style building, built in 1912, was the first headquarters of the Benito Juárez delegation and its walls are adorned with "Our cultural roots", a mural made by the artist Francisco Eppens in 1979.
Parish and ex-convent of Santo Domingo de Guzmán

Plaza Gómez Farías
Crossing the Extremadura Avenue towards the San Juan neighborhood, the Plaza Gómez Farías, like the Plaza Agustín Jáuregui Forum, is the meeting point of several sites and historical moments of Mixcoac:

When the Revolution reached the Historical Center, Paz and his parents took refuge in the house of his grandfather, Ireneo Paz. Mixcoac became the place that saw the poet grow, Nobel Prize for Literature, a relationship that is manifested in his poem Vuelta (1976):
... I'm in Mixcoac, letters are rotting in mailboxes. On the lime of the wall the stain of the bougainvillea crushed by the sun, written by the sun, purple passionate calligraphy. I walk backwards towards what I left or left ...
The house, where Paz lived until he was 17, is currently a convent of the Order of the Dominicans.
The actor's house
Crossing Avenida Revolución, on Calle Tiziano 34, is the resting place for retired actors, journalists and writers.
