Parque Tezontle


The Colonia which hosts the Parque Tezontle is named for Dr. Alfonso Ortiz Tirado (1893–1960). Tirado was roughly equally famous as an opera singer and as an orthopedic doctor. He was the personal physician of Frida Kahlo. He made enough money playing roles in L'elisir d'amore and Madame Butterfly that he was able to found the Children's Hospital formerly on Niño Heroes avenue in the Doctores neighborhood.
