We just arrived and hadn't known you should book a tour in advance. Fortunately there was English tour in half an hour and they had free spots for the two of us. Great guide, beautiful house with ingenious design. I was glad we went. My only pet peeve was that you can buy a photo permit for 500 mexican dollars,... More

Hard to book, did not get a place even 2 days in advance. No english speaking, we asked the hotel to call for us. Wish it was more accesible, as we didn't visit in the end.

We took a tour with nine other people of Barragan's pioneering Mexican modernist home built in 1948. The home is beautiful, and interesting and worth the effort. It is worth phoning well in advance for reservations.

Barragan is a Mexican Icon. Getting to go into his home was a treat. After seeing Centro Historico or Condesa's great art deco architecture, Barragan's house is a treat. It kind of bridges the old and new. Anway, I think he was a visionary. I always enjoy seeing how famous people lived. In this case, he seemed to practice what... More

A tour of the home of an amazing architect--so very inspiring! Our guide made Barragan's life and artistry come alive--he was great. Each space, indoor and out, had so much interest. We found it a bit tricky to arrange reservations--not sure what to recommend as we had a friend who is fluent in spanish ultimately succeed in making our reservations... More

We wanted to visit, walked 30 minutes and couldn't get in without reservation, not even later on the same day. A pity...we'll have to try another time

small but a jewel for architects. One of the world's greats showing his stuff on a micro scale. You can see various schools of architecture-aesthetics coming out of here.

Luis Barragan received an architect's equivalent of the Nobel Prize for his talents in civil engineering and architecture. And this is his house. You can feel his presence and our guide, Daniel, did an excellent job of recreating the surprising touches that characterize the genius of Barragan. It's an intimate and inspiring tour. Well worth the price of admission.

Expect the unexpected. That is what occurs when you see the slab of concrete upon coming to this location that looks like nothing at all like an attraction. Then you go inside and some of the bets spots are secrets even to yourself, until you discover them. This is such a find and when you see the mastery of art... More
