Book Overview
The forgotten cafe where Fidel Castro and Che Guevara used to meet, a tribute to the city's ghosts, a mammoth in the metro, a cave transformed into a shrine, an underground parking lot with mosaics dating from 1930, a Baroque altarpiece made from papier mache, a village based on the principles of Thomas More's Utopia, secret masterpieces of colonial art in rooms only open around two hours a week, the largest roof garden in Latin America, the photo on which the Oscar statuette is modelled, the first building in the world faced with a material that can trap urban smog, a road surface designed for praying as you walk ... Far from the crowds and the usual cliches, Mexico City is filled with hidden treasures revealed only to the residents and visitors who leave the beaten path. An indispensable guide for those who thought they knew the city well or who would like to discover its many other facets.
