Nicknamed the Blue House, this residence in the Coyoacán neighborhood, one of the oldest and most beautiful neighborhoods in Mexico City, was the home and studio of the artist Frida Kahlo and her husband, the muralist Diego Rivera.

Living a vibrant Mexican wrestling show is without a doubt one of the best activities you can experience in Mexico City. A show that not only takes place in the ring, but also in its stands, thanks to the passion of Mexicans for this sport, which mixes theatrical sequences with gymnastics, humor and action. An example of this passion is that in Mexico City there is a fight show practically every day, and on weekends always a full stadium!
