This picturesque southern neighborhood, originally a separate political entity, has slowly been enveloped by the city, yet San Angel still retains a quaint charm as reflected by its colonial mansions and many churches. The Carmelite Church and ex-Monastery, originally the headquarters of the Discalzed Order, has been converted into a spectacular museum which houses religious art work and a unique collection of authentic mummies.
We will stroll the quaint cobblestone streets, heading towards the San Jacinto Plaza (where the Bazaar Sabado handicraft market is held every Saturday), to visit the local church with the same name, stopping along the way to admire the gracious old summer homes of the upper class from a previous epoch. Our tour includes the unforgettable Museum of Casa del Risco (the Isidro Fabela Cultural Center) with its remarkable fountain. Visiting this suburb is like taking a step back in time.
This walking tour lasts about 3 hours.
