We do not know when or where la Malinche died, but Hernan Cortés died in Spain in 1547. Since then his body has been moved eight times, but it was always his wish that he be buried in "New Spain" in a monastery at Coyoacán in what is now the affluent southern suburbs of México City. This was not to be - the monastery was never built.
This hospital (one of the oldest in the Americas) was founded by Cortés. Some believe it was built on the spot where Cortés and Montezuma first met, although this seems doubtful. He is buried in the adjacent church - shown below.
Frida Kahlo lived not far from here - her house is now the Museo Frida Kahlo (also known as La Casa Azul), and it is open to the public.
