San Angel is the most beautiful neighborhoods in town. Just walk through its cobblestone narrow streets, and keep walking until you reach San Jacinto Church, The Plaza de los Arcangeles and Bazar del Sabado, where you can buy some handcrafts or have a good regional food. Outside there's a square where you can see paintings, and more handcrafts, which by... More

Its a colonial area that in Saturday has bazaars, painters, crafts, great restaurants . Its a posch area so you expect high prices for average Mexican, but normal prices for europeans.

It retains its old paved roads, architecture and old 18th or 19th century style houses, which nowadays belong to a kind of "urban gentry". It is full of small, eclectic (and expensive... More

There are a lot of places to visit in the area. If you are there on Saturday you should go to the craft market. But if you only want to see the neighborhood you can walk around and find churches, markets, restaurants and a beautiful atmosphere.

The very best craft market anywhere that I have had the pleasure of strolling! It's big but not overwhelming and the quality of the work is absolutely first class.

This neighborhood is beautiful, big houses with big entrance doors, old styile lamps and if your lucky you can see some concret rings attach to the walls that (are not some kind of mini prehispanig ball game courts) but were built there to park horses outside the magnificent houses; I say is good for saturdays cause on the main square...

Street scenes, art, restaurants, history = all fantastic. For those of Irish descent, the monument to John Riley and the Saint Patricks Batallion and the memorial plaque is impressive. Had lunch at El Carmen Bistro and Deli a real treat - business fixed price at 9 dollars included 3 courses and desert. Highly recommended. Also the church of the Virgin... More

Neighborhood Profile
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 when the San Jacinto Plaza and surroundings really shine as artists gather to exhibit a variety of arts and crafts, from paintings to clothing.
