Station / Estación # 25: Iztacalco

Iztacalco is designated one of Mexico City’s 21 ‘Barrios Mágicos’ (Magical Neighbourhoods) for its well preserved narrow cobbled streets, antique churches, quaint chapels and general vibe of yesteryear.

I was lucky to have a new friend Ricardo, who lives in the area, guide me in and around the ‘7 barrios’ (7 neighbourhoods) area.

Ricardo told me that the Latin American legend of ‘La Llorona‘ (The Weeping Woman) is especially poignant in the area.

A few of the other things that caught my attention were a VW taxi, an ice cream bike, some giant bags of chips and some nice street art.

Iztacalco está designado como uno de los 21 ‘Barrios Magicos’ del DF pr sus calles de piedra bien preservadas, iglesias antiguas, capillas pintorescas y ambiente del pasado.

Tuve la suerte de estar acompañado y guiado por la zona de los ‘7 barrios’ por un amigo nuevo, Ricardo, que vive en el área.

Me dijo que la leyenda de ‘La Llorana‘ se siente especialmente conmovedora ahi.

Alguans cosas más que me atrajeron la atención fueron un taxi VW, una bici de helados, unas bolsa gigantes de botanas y un poco más de arte callejero lindo.
