Image #10 constitutes a link to a few scenes from Coyoacán's central market (mercado). Image #11 links to a museum in Coyoacán with exhibits that document Mexico's resistance to American invasions of Mexico, with special emphasis on the Battle of Churubusco in 1848. Image #12 links to the Casa Azul in Coyoacán, which was the amazing home of Frida Kahlo and Diego River, which, inself contains embedded links to their lives and art. Among a number of other important landmarks and institutions in Coyoacán, is Anahuacalli (> Náhuatl for 'house of Anáhuac', the Aztec's name for the Valley of Mexico), the museum that Diego Rivera designed and built to house his own art and a collection of pre-Hispanic humanities artifacts.
