#5 of 14 in Neighborhoods in Mexico City
Soak up the local culture and the welcoming atmosphere of San Angel, an old colonial neighborhood in the capital. Formerly a village, the district has been incorporated into the city, yet managed to retain its simple, dusty elegance and pokey cobblestone streets. Browse the stores and market stalls selling trinkets, fresh fruit and vegetables, and locally made clothes. A walk along the streets reveals several architectural highlights, including colonial-era churches with Baroque interiors and neoclassical mansions.

  • I love to visit the bazaar on Saturday, especially on a day of good weather. There are a lot of crafts of all kinds, at good price. Although the pictures never caught my attention, dress 2 parks with movement and color. I like to eat in the market of the Carmen.

  • Nice cobblestrone streets. Old buildings. Great artcraft stores. Nice restaurants. Great place to stroll. On Saturdays and Sundays there are artists offering their paintings.  more »
  • The constructions of the area are beautiful in their vast majority, I recommend making a long walk along the cobbled streets. If you go on Saturday, it is essential to visit the bazaar on Saturday and tianguis that gets outside, in both you will find all kind of trendy and original crafts. It is like entering a town within the city of Mexico, access is easy and is centrally located.
