Biblioteca central UNAM.jpg

UNAM's Library

The university was founded on 22 September 1910 by Justo Sierra, then Minister of Education in the Porfirio Díaz regime, who sought to create a very different institution from its 19th-century precursor, the Royal and Pontifical University of Mexico, which had been founded on 21 September 1551 by a royal decree signed by Crown Prince Phillip on behalf of Charles I of Spain and brought to a definitive closure in 1865 by Maximilian I of Mexico. Instead of reviving what he saw as an anachronistic institution with strong ties to the Roman Catholic Church, he aimed to create a new university, secular in nature and national in scope, that could reorganize higher education within the country, serve as a model of positivism and encompass the ideas of the dominant Mexican liberalism.

More about UNAM, HERE by Wikipedia.

We'll end our adventure in front of the Olympic swimming pool to admire dancers who belong to UNAM's folklorico ballet.

15 HRS. - We'll leave UNAM for  

Fountain depicting the drinking coyotes that gave the town its name at the Jardín Centenario

Coyoacán 

The village, later municipality, of Coyoacan remained completely independent of Mexico City through the colonial period into the 19th century. 

In 1857, the area was incorporated into the Federal District when this district was expanded. In 1928, the borough was created when the Federal District was divided into sixteen boroughs. The urban sprawl of Mexico City reached the borough in the mid 20th century, turning farms, former lakes and forests into developed areas, but many of the former villages have kept their original layouts, plazas and narrow streets and have conserved structures built from the 16th to the early 20th centuries. This has made the borough of Coyoacan, especially its historic center, a popular place to visit on weekends.

We'll be passing by 

Viveros de Coyoacán as we proceed to downtown, for lunch.

More about Coyoacán, HERE by Wikipedia.

16 HRS. - We'll have lunch in a nice, inexpensive restaurant in Coyoacán. Dutch treat.

18 HRS. - End of event

The neighborhood is also populated with expensive offices, restaurants, museums, luxurious stores and shopping malls; some embassies are also located in Polanco, including the embassy of Canada.
