The cobbled streets of San Angel

Take 3 hours


San Ángel looks like out of a postcard. This neighborhood was originally a holiday retreat for the aristocracy of the capital, who built their vacation homes by the huge orchard of the convent. With its nineteenth century mansions, bougainvillea blossoms, the narrow, cobbled streets, the stillness, the bright colors of their facades, iron bars and flowers on the balconies ... you ask yourself: Am I still in Mexico City?

As you arrive in San Angel, flowers and art welcome you. Flowers at the market on Revolución. Colonial art at the Carmen Convent Museun and contemporary art at the San Angel Culture House. Opposite is the Carmen Square, where there is a lively crafts bazaar every Saturday. Across the garden, the first building was the jail.

Here you will find Amargura street. Go up the sidewalk and turn at the junction to reach the San Jacinto Square, the heart of San Angel. Be sure to visit the convent, its atrium gardens are spectacular. In this square, where an art flea market is held on Saturdays, you will also find the Casa del Risco Museum with an amazing Talavera fountain.

Return to the junction and continue walking, on Juárez street this time. On this street you will find spectacular mansions. Take a walk along Árbol street and on your left you will find the beautiful and quiet Arcangeles Square that will make you think you're really in heaven.

San Angel is bustling and full of life every Saturday, when the art and craft markets are set up. A must-see weekend destination.

For shopping, in addition to the markets you have excellent choices at the shops on San Jacinto Square and the Plaza del Angel, Antique Center.

At lunchtime you will find restaurants for all budgets. You'll find fine dining at the Avenida de la Paz restaurants.

Wear comfortable shoes and take a camera, you won't be able to stop taking pictures!

If you liked the village feel, head for Coyoacan.
