Dette kommer dere til å gjøre

The usual is a three-hour walking tour around an area of ​​just 120 ha (300 ac). This is part of what we call "el centro" (downtown). You will not need anything more than comfortable clothes, sunglasses, a suitable hat and the willingness to walk. The main objective is to understand things like: The foundation of the city (1596), its history and its evolution from the colonial period to current times. The styles, languages, construction methods and materials ​​of local architecture throughout the centuries. The influence of foreign fashions. The forms and habits of people in different generations. I will show you maps and old images, in order to make it more illustrative. At the end of the trip, you will have much more than a pale notion of this place, and you might also learn some new concepts. We'll start in the second oldest plaza, then a quick glance to the old city hall, the cathedral and then go into the Barrio Antiguo (Old District). Here we'll see some of the oldest and more interesting dwelings. We'll head north to reach the Santa Lucía waterway, where we'll talk about some historic episodes as well as see some nice vernacular architecture. The next stop is the area where the first settlements took place. The tour will end in a good place to eat delicious typical local dishes. The main features of this: authentic, not pretentious and not frequented by tourists

Juan Manuel

I am passionate about history, architecture and material heritage. I’ve been combining this taste professionally for twenty five years, time in which I have dedicated myself to research, practice and teaching. I have published eight books on local history and architecture, and my special pleasure is to guide those who want to know Monterrey as travelers, not as tourists.

Her skal du være

We will know and understand the two oldest public plazas, and take a quick look inside the old city hall and the Cathedral. At the Barrio Antiguo (“Old District”) will get to know some interesting old dwelings. In Paseo Santa Lucía will pay attention to the last architectural survivors from early 19th century. The last stop: the area of the early 1596 settlement, including a look a the remains of the old Santa Lucía creek and surroundings.

Ting å huske på

Kanselleringsvilkår

Alle opplevelser kan kanselleres og refunderes fullt ut innen 24 timer etter kjøp eller minst 7 dager før opplevelsen starter.

Kommunikasjonsvilkår

Kommuniser alltid gjennom Airbnb. For å beskytte betalingen din må du aldri overføre penger eller kommunisere utenfor Airbnb-nettstedet eller -appen.

Krav til gjesten

Offisiell legitimasjon

Du må ta et bilde av deg selv som matcher bildet på legitimasjonen din. Airbnb trenger dette for å bekrefte hvem som faktisk skal på opplevelsen. Du trenger bare gjøre dette én gang.

Flere tips

There will be no free Wi-Fi for most of the walk. Bring some Mexican cash for your own small expenses (i.e. bottled water) USD 20 will be enough. My recommended non-tourist experience for lunch is done on an authenticity basis. Keep in mind local cuisine is based on meat.
