The Exconvent is worth the visit. Only a portion of the lower floor is available for touring due to earthquake damage. However, there was a beautiful exhibit of traditional women's clothing from all over Mexico. You will spend a max of 45 minutes here. It's...More

This place is very cool, at times it feels a little haunted, a little dark and solitary. The gardens are well kept and on the top floor there are some amazing views of the Tepozteco. Really hated the grid in the middle though. The poor...More
