Plaza Santa Catarina

Plaza in Coyoacán & San Ángel

About a block south of Coyoacán's nursery is Plaza Santa Catarina, with the modest, mustard-colored church that gives the square its name. Across the street, the Centro Cultural Jesús Reyes Heroles is a colonial-era estate with a coffee shop and lovely grounds, where yuccas and jacarandas spring from carefully tended gardens.
