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.

It is a neighborhood with solid houses and great park in the center, it use to have the weekend houses of rich people from Mexico city. Now there are some markets with handcrafts, antiques stores, restaurant, and is safe. No metro close, but walking distance. No garage parking, very popular. Must visit on Saturday , any day of the week... More

We have found a very nice bazar on Saturday. Plenty of art works, like painting of different artistic direction, furniture that you just want to take home, and not limited to touristic staff, Locals come here too. Highly recommended to visit

San Angel is a lovely colonial "suburb" of Mexico City housing many lovely old buildings and an historic church. Near the plaza are many shops displaying local and regional art and crafts. And along the plaza's edge are many cafes where one can sit and watch the world go by. On Saturdays the plaza fills with local artists displaying their... More

This place was one of my highlights in Mexico City. We visited on a Saturday when the artists display their wares in the park. Surrounding the park are arcades and indoor art markets that are just as good. We had lunch in Saks which was sensational and incredible value for money. The place is absolutely abuzz with acitivy, vibrant colours... More

Make sure to visit this city for a quick and enjoyable side day trip. There are several art museums, memorable restaurants, and architecture that will certainly impress. Visiting this town was one of the highlights of our vacation.

Quaint square but when we went it was filled with a lot of men laying around filling all the benches and on the floor which made it feel a bit uncomfortable. There were no other tourists so we felt a little out of place. Wear comfortable shoes as the cobblestone streets and pavements are in terrible condition.

If you plan to visit Mexico City, then you have absolutely to go to San Angel at Plaza San Jacinto and visit the Saturday Bazar.. it's so fun and full of traditions and colors. It is literarely a little tiny elegant pueblo inside an elegant colonial town. You will love it.

This suburb neighborhood is upscale and has a University feel. Would see is with Coyoacan. Try to see the Church of the Carmelites.
