We went to the opening of an exhibit - engravings collected by a Mexican ambassador to Turkey . The museum is an enormous beautiful house. This museum is down the street from the Bazaar de Sábado. All of the houses are from the 16-17th century and have been turned into restaurants.

On Saturday this art market is well worth a visit. There are numerous vendors with a variety of artesanias. Musicians add to the festive atmosphere. One building houses a number of interesting shops, as well as central patio restaurant with live music.There are some upscale restaurants, but also some reasonably priced ones around the square, which serve good Mexican fare....

We walked from coyacan to San angel and in all honesty it wasn't worth it. It was quieter and things were priced higher. There wasn't as much going on. Wish we spent the 2 hours walking there just staying in coyacan (so we went back another day)

This is such a nice neighborhood to walk around and shop around in. From the beautiful church to the surrounding art offerings and shops, you'll love it all. You might even imagine yourself living in one of the beautiful homes that line the streets.

Cobblestones and haciendas...lovely churches and beautiful shops. Most places are at least 300 years old. Charming and elegant part of Mexico City.

Some of the best restaurants in CDMX are in San Angel. That alone makes it worth a visit, but after you eat it's worth strolling around to work off that newly earned belly. The neighborhood has a few little parks that aren't bad. It's the ivy lined residential streets that are the real gems though. It's worth getting lost in... More

The cobble stone streets and the former vacation mansions are now immersed in the middle of one of the largest cities in the world. However, you can still feel the unique 19th century atmosphere, as you walk along the streets and go in and out of art and crafts shops around the area. There are also many places to eat.... More

You can spend hours on a Saturday afternoon walking all the different vendors and artists that come to the main plaza. Great artists and local finds. There are also good restaurants in the area.

Neighbourhood 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.
