Mids. Not my favorite to be honest it was pretty quiet and not a lot of people out and about. Food was decent asf, but nothing crazy.

Driving or walking through the cobblestone pedestrian streets is a nice and safe easy outing. The old houses around the area have a colonial taste. There is live music on the weekends and the streets get very full of mostly young people. Recommended.

I have visited this barrio with a local friend and I have to confess that it was one of the safest neighborhoods in all Mexico for passing your night. So colorful and full of beautiful people

Lots of bars with cheap beer, snacks, and talented live rock bands. Relatively safe I think, based on how many young people there are. Definitely worth a visit on a Friday night.

The Barrio Antiguo offers a pristine and authentic excursion into Mexico's colourful, colonial and indigenous history. You'll find interesting architecture and great bars which usually offer live music acts every night. There's a vibrant but extremely relaxed nightlife scene with many fairly new, leaned-back venues and hip options nicely nestled into the old town atmosphere.

After a little restoration project a few years ago this was set to be a trendy place to visit. Not so. Most of the shops were closed. A few open restaurants selling boring food. Disappointing

Don't forget to have a night tour at Barrio Antiguo and get drunk, La Iguana, since 1991 it's the right place.

The friendly vibes, antiques all around and colorful buildings will be worth it.. I am in Monterrey for a while so I have been here twice - once on a very sunny day and second time in good pleasant weather.. it is crowded on both days.. :)
The place is lined up with cafes and restaurants and there are streets with carts for shopping - books, antiques, incenses, handicrafts and what not.. it is so beautiful to just walk through these lanes even if you don't shop much.. be careful as it is crowded, not sure how safe it is at night.

According to my Mexican colleague, this place has been around since the 17th century, and lots of the buildings were from that time.

This place has lots of small stalls selling all sorts of things, there are lots of restaurant and bars around.

We went in the afternoon and the weather is quite hot, we couldn't finish covering all the streets.

Worth a visit to experience an old town
