A neighborhood in the South of Mexico City, between Revolución and Periferico, close to Tizapán and Campestre.

It has a fairly poor part, where the market is (and where good food is to be had): here you will find cheap shoes, bizarre consumer goods, and a place where you can get Mexican tax forms.

The rich part hosts the Bazar del Sabado, an arts and crafts markets, slightly overpriced but not too bad.
There are also many incredibly beautiful and ancient houses, which you are not allowed to visit.
On Altavista you will find the interesting modernist house that Juan O'Gorman build for Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera, an interesting contrast to the other house the couple shared in Coyoacan.

gringo tourists can be seen walking there at any time, highly recognizable in their gringo uniform.
