In San Angel, next to the Saturday Bazar (Bazaar del Sábado). Free entrance. Also known as Museo Casa del Risco. There is an impressive large fountain made of pieces of ceramic worth seeing. There is also a museum in what used to be a house.

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
