Visit Frida Kahlo's Colorful Santuary

The Frida Kahlo Museum, or "Casa Azul," is a vibrant and beautiful sanctuary in Mexico City. The bright blue buildings are so pigmented that it brings a liveliness and happiness to the space. You can tour the grounds to view art by her and Diego Rivera, as well as rooms like their kitchen and bedrooms. The most interesting room is her art studio, which has been left as it was the day she left this earth in 1954. Colorful paints and tinctures are lying around waiting for the next stroke of paint to hit the canvas, all carefully lined up in a rainbow of colors.

While Frida and Diego's former home is one the the most crowded tourist destinations in Mexico City, it was still my favorite. There was something so special and inspiring about being in the space of such an iconic and influential artists.

Tip: Book in advance since they do sell out.
