  • One of the best areas of Mexico City, both to live and to walk around and enjoy everything that moves through the area. It is essential to visit the San Angel market (open on Saturday morning), enjoy the Expo which is mounted in the plaza de San Jacinto, on the market that assembled many artists in the plaza del Carmen, stroll through the Avenue of peace and enjoy a good meal in one of the many restaurants that are in it. Also is nice for the senses of smell and sight to visit the flower market which is located on Av. revolution, as well as stroll through one of the areas most exclusive of Mexico City, as it is the AV Altavista. In the end, it may be a very full and Nice, safe day that does not disappoint anyone.

  • It is nice to stroll through its streets, but need to bring good Footwear, because the pavement can make tired walk. San Angel was a former village, on the outskirts of the city of Mexico. At the beginning of the century last represetaba a journey you get, so there were lodges. There are still houses with large gardens, unfortunately behind large walls. Visit the square of the archangels, a quiet corner away from the hustle and bustle. The Church and Museum of Carmen and the Temple of San Jacinto. A splendid place to eat and spend the afternoon is the former restaurant San Angelin. It is expensive but very pleasant. There are several good restaurants in the area. On Saturday opens the base on Saturday, a place to see and buy contemporary and traditional crafts. Saturday also expose painters in the squares of el Carmen and San Jacinto.

  • Who comes to Mexico City have to move about 10 kms to the San Angel to enjoy a place standing at the time of the revolution and the Spanish colonionalismo. The central square has a relaxed atmosphere and have a market every Saturday with colorful Mexican crafts, and tacky. The multicoloured houses, some ancient monasteries tell the story silently from the period of Spanish invasion and the history of the churches of the people cristianiamo native imposiçao. Everything is magic and want to photograph
