CDMX is one of the most beautiful and vibrant cities in the world, and MADERO street is one
of its gems. This charming street has plenty to offer visitors, including shops for those looking
for souvenirs or everyday items, delicious restaurants, and plenty of places to relax and take
in the sights and sounds of this amazing city, and today I’m going to share with you five of my
favorite hidden gems on this street. So without further ado, let’s get started!

Latin American Tower

When you’re in Mexico City, it’s hard to avoid the looming Latin American Tower, but what
makes it even better? Miralto the Restaurant and Level 40 the Bar located on 40th and 41st
floors of this iconic building, high experience dining destination. This is an iconic culinary
hotspot. They use traditional Mexican finishes/designs to reinforce its location as well as
presenting visitors with breathtaking views. With an open view to city life and plenty of space
at your fingertips you’ll never want this building’s menu or interior design elements to end!

La Casa de los Azulejos

The House of the Tiles. This historical mansion is today occupied by Sanborns, who put their
own spin on Mexican cuisine. Try sitting in one area for dinner – we recommend trying out
either the central atrium or back room where it looks like an elegant affair with old Mexico City
photographs hanging wall-to-paints that are sure to make you feel like your trip down memory
lane has just begun!

El pasaje Bazaar

Imagine a haven where you can find authentic handcrafted goods from around the country.
This is not an ordinary bazaar; it’s more than that – this event has been recognised as an
integral part of Mexico’s history and culture by being held in a strategic location at the Ave FI
Madero street. The benefits don’t stop at just shopping though: The proceeds go towards
promoting Local Consumption through showcasing Made-in Mexico design & crafts made
locally instead of importation! only runs on Saturday and Sunday.

The San Francisco Temple & Monastery

This is one of the most historic Franciscan friaries in Mexico City. The site occupied part or all
former zoological gardens of Moctezuma II, and hosted 12 early Spanish settlers to New
Spain before it became a monastery for them! There’s always time for discovery with this
small church on one of Mexico’s busiest streets. You will feel very at peace while walking
through these doors as well knowing how much life can change within these walls.

Terraza Catedral

Not exactly on Madero street but close enough, you’ll find the stunning view from Terraza Catedral.

This is the perfect position to stop for a moment and appreciate Mexico City’s skyline. Oh, and don’t be afraid to get your hands dirty, dog into some nachos or choose from their selection of tacos and wash it down with a drink from the extensive cocktail menu.
