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
