A Neighborhood’s History

Polanco, the fashionable neighborhood in Mexico City

During colonial times, in the 16th century, the Hacienda de San Juan de los Morales was the first building in the area that the King of Spain donated to Hernán Cortés, and it was named in honor of the mulberry trees that were planted there.

Towards 1930, following the Mexican Revolution, the lands were divided in response to the demand of families who wanted to move away from the city center. The streets in the area were then named after different humanists, philosophers and writers, such as French author Eugene Sue.

The avenue that was originally called Paseo del Emperador, designed as a direct path to transfer Emperor Maximiliano I of Habsburg from the Chapultepec Castle to the National Palace, is currently known as Paseo de la Reforma. It extended up to the Chapultepec Forest and the newly-subdivided lands of the Hacienda de los Morales. This avenue connects Polanco to other areas of Mexico City, offering magnificent views and tours to those who explore it either on foot or by car.

Cultural diversity has been a hallmark of the Polanco neighborhood. To this day, it is the favorite area for new residents arriving from other countries, who are delighted by the cosmopolitan atmosphere and by its streets, so full of life.
