Música Roma

Survivor of fashion, slamming doors, closures, mafias, financial crisis and rumors of decommissioning, Nacho works together with "alicios", the group that is responsible for almost everything from scheduling bands to broadcast, sell beer and record sessions for the record Grabaxiones Alicia, which offers a catalog that collects live performances that take place in this space. It is a truly pluralistic forum, but the rythms that usually sound here are garage, surf, punk and rock.

Museos y centros culturales Cuauhtémoc

It is one of the most beautiful buildings we have in the city, designed by Italian architect Adamo Boari. It was completed in 1907 by order of Porfirio Díaz. It combines several styles: Italian Renaissance, Gothic and Spanish Plateresque. What surprises the most is the detail in its design. Smithies, for example, were brought from Italy, and the quarry is from Chiluca, very elaborate and at length, with gargoyles and a very nice style. Upon entering the building it is important to see all the details, from the elevators, air conditioning grilles or bars of the counter, where someone attends you to send a letter.


7. Pride March LGBTTTI

Gay y lésbico

The march, more than a carnival, is a way to celebrate small advances in legal matters to eradicate discrimination and made ​​visible to all members of this community into society.

There are many myths about absinthe, a famous drink in the Parisian intellectual scene of the early twentieth century. Everyone can be verified or disproved in Artemisia, a bar exclusively dedicated to the liquor absinthe, fennel and anise. The Porfirian home offers the experience of a full night starting at their restaurant. They offer simple dishes of French influence, gastronomic eccentricities in which the quality of the raw material is privileged.

It was there that Angel Sánchez and French entrepreneurs took advantage of the power of moving water to create electricity in 1897, during the wave of foreign investment in the country that made ​​possible by the "porfiriana pax".
