The Magic of the Cities.

Zen promotes the rediscovery of the obvious, which is so often lost in its familiarity and simplicity. It sees the miraculous in the common and magic in our everyday surroundings. When we are not rushed, and our minds are unclouded by conceptualizations, a veil will sometimes drop, introducing the viewer to a world unseen since childhood. ~ John Greer

Iglesia de Romita / Romita Church


Detail:


The name of Colonia Roma comes, not from the Italian city, but from a small village located in a corner of what today is Colonia Roma. The Pueblo de la Romita during Aztec times was named Aztacalco and its name was changed after the Spanish conquest when the church N. Señora de la Natividad (Our Lady of the Nativity) was built in 1530. Even if most of La Romita was destroyed in the early 20th century, when Colonia Roma was developed, the church still remains, now its name is Temple of St. Francis.
