In this little quarter, you can find gardens, colonial houses, markets, and also art exposition in the middle of the squares. Visit the church and the park with the Obregon's monument. Easy connection by the Metro Bus.

San Angel is a very old town in Mexico city and still it maintains the clasical colonial houses structure for many of the homes there. Some streets of the area are made of stone keeping them with a more antique style.

A community or burrough near downtown Mexico that is worth the visit on a Saturday morning when local vendors and artisians set up their works for sale. Peaceful, relaxing and some nice crafts and art work

San Angel
San Ángel is known for its artistic vibe and elegant
details displayed throughout its streets, antique
residences and haciendas where famous actors like
Consuelo Velázquez, Capulina and other prominent
families used to live and that have now been turned
into beautiful galleries, cafés and restaurants. An
array of cultural and artistic activities are
organized in the neighborhood, but it is on Saturdays
