San Ángel

Tranquil San Ángel used to be a country pueblo that served as a summer retreat for the capital’s rich and famous. México City long ago encircled San Ángel, which remains today a highly desirable and expensive residential neighborhood.

Artists and craftsmen gather every Saturday in Plaza San Jacinto, San Ángel’s main square, for the Jardín del Arte, a fun art market that can yield some real treasures.

Prominent among San Ángel’s captivating attractions are the 16th century San Jacinto Church, Museo del Carmen, Museo Casa del Risco and the Museo de Arte Carrillo Gil, an outstanding modern art museum.

Follow narrow lanes as they twist and turn heading toward Calle Altavista. You might catch glimpses into the elegant homes of San Ángeleños, hidden behind stone walls. Some of México City’s toniest boutiques line Calle Altevista, also the location of the Museo Casa Estudio Diego Rivera. You can visit the artist’s studio and see the bed in which he died.
