At Miguel Ángel de Quevedo Station
The meeting point can be inside or outside the station, depending on which means of transport you arrive. From there we will walk to Chimalistac which is located a few blocks away
We will take a walk through the quiet and quiet streets of Chimmalistac, where we will visit its chapel as well as a bridge built by the Carmelite friars under which a river once passed. Once we get to Parque de la Bombilla, we will walk to the Museo del Carmen, located on the other side of Avenida de los Insurgentes.
In addition to contemplating the magnificent 17th century Church, we will visit the Museo del Carmen, located in what was previously occupied by the Convent of the Order of the Carmelites. Here you can see various works made by some of the best painters of the colonial era. The museum also offers temporary exhibitions, as well as having a "peculiar" collection located in the shadows of its mysterious basement.
San Angel has one of the best gastronomic offers in the city. From Mexican food to international cuisine, several of its restaurants offer five-star service, however, these places are usually expensive so eating in the local market could be a good option if you are looking to eat something cheaper and more local.
After lunch we will visit the Casa del Risco Museum, where you will be able to admire its beautiful baroque fountain as well as some art that was part of the personal collection of the diplomat Isidro Fabela. After that, we will take a walk through the Plaza de San Jacinto where every Saturday an Art market known as Bazar del Sábado is installed.
Finally, we will visit the small but magnificent Temple of San Jacinto, one of the oldest in the city. In addition to its eye-catching altar you will be able to contemplate the beauty and tranquility of its garden. The last stop of our tour will be in the Plaza de los Arcángeles. A green and peaceful place nestled in the city with a very particular atmosphere.
