San Juan Bautista Church (Parroquia San Juan Bautista)
San Juan Bautista Parish is a church located in the Coyoacan neighborhood of Mexico City that is one of the oldest churches in Mexico City. San Juan Bautista is a Catholic church known for its blend of baroque and colonial architecture. It is a focal point of the historic square Plaza Hidalgo, which attracts many visitors of the city. In 1934, the church became a National Monument of Mexico. 

San Juan Bautista church dates back to the late 1500s, when it was constructed during the Franciscan order. The whitewashed and stone exterior still dates back to the 16th century. Inside, however, not much from its early days remain, though a recent reconstruction was done that strived to stay true to the church’s original aesthetics. The renovation has returned the church to a glorious splendor of art and decoration. As you walk down the long nave, you’ll do so under a spectacular carved ceiling that has relief designs sculpted into it. The gilded altar gleams at the front of the church with opulent sculptures adorning the gleaming gold. 

Practical Info

San Juan Bautista Church is located on the eastern side of Plaza Hidalgo and is free to enter. It is still used for weekly service and mass is conducted every Sunday. 
Address: Mexico City, Mexico

Coyoacan Like a Local Private Tour: Highlights, Hidden Gems & Food

From the peaceful greenery of Viveros de Coyoacán Park, you’ll stroll to Santa Caterina square. Munch on tamales, wash them down with atole, a traditional hot drink made from corn and masa, and admire the bright yellow church that sits on the plaza. Have your camera ready to snap the ornate facade of Capilla de la Conchita, another spectacular chapel on another beautiful, tree-filled Coyoacan square! Mercado de Coyoacan, the beating heart of the district, is the place to shop, rub shoulders with the locals, and, of course, eat. Here your local host will treat you to crunchy tostada topped with refried beans, cheese, and salsa (as well as your choice of meat or fish). A quick stop by Frida Kahlo’s blue house, and you’ll be onto the last foodie hotspot of the tour. In the shade of the contemporary Cineteca Nacional’s white, geometric roof, Nevería Roxy is the place to grab a tub of moreish, artisan ice cream. A deliciously sweet way to end a culture and cuisine filled day in Cayoacan.
