This is a charming town inside Mexico City. Superbly well preserved with its cobblestone street and its beautiful square, is the home of the San Ildefonso artisan market on Saturdays.

Nice quaint area of town. Went there for the Saturday Market. Lots of vendors selling the same stuff. Some amazing artwork though spread out all around. I was impressed by the quality.

Stop in Miguel Angel de Quevedo metro stop, and walk around. I recommend you the Iglesia del Carmen and Iglesia San Jacinto. You can also find a monument to Obregon.

The quality of the crafts here (on Saturday) was exceptional, though the prices often reflected that fact. The park and surroundings were fun to explore. It's a beautiful neighborhood.
