Full description
Visit San Angel located to the south of Mexico City with mansions full of stories and legends. Then, continue to the Museum of El Carmen which deals with a monastic school built between 1613 and 1628 by the religious order of the Discalced Carmelites. Today, 488 years since its founding, it is a historical museum that preserves more than 80 religious art pieces near 12 mummified corpses and a large garden that once served as an orchard for the friars.

Afterwards, enjoy a visit to the Bazaar Saturday, one of the most visited and colorful of Mexico City, which opened its doors from 1960 and is considered a center for craftsmanship par excellence. It offers a wide range of articles ranging from handicrafts to fine craftsmanship made with silver, iron, ceramics, wood, textiles, glass, tinplate, jute and even paints.

Later, take a tour in Chimalistac. Its name comes from an ancient pre-Hispanic population called Temalistac (whose meaning is 'where the stone is sacrificed'), an old and wealthy neighborhood, where you'll find stone bridges and small historic chapels with a strong colonial air.
