Diego and Frida’s House (San Angel)

Artists Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo are icons of Mexico. Duh!  This is one of their homes (they had two).  The homes a very simple.  Here you see Diego’s main studio and some great paintings and photographs.  Diego was an enthusiastic collector of Pre-Hispanic art and relics.  Many are on display.

There are two homes here.  A red one for Diego and blue for Frida.  They certainly gave each other their space.  They are located in the south part of the city in the San Angel area on Avenida Altavista.  (BTW, right next door is the most excellent San Angel Inn Restaurant. One of the most famous restaurants in Mexico City.  And deservedly so.
