Plaza San Jacinto information
Every Saturday the Bazar Sábado brings masses of color and crowds of people to this square, 500m west of Avenida Insurgentes.
Museo Casa del Risco is midway along the plaza’s north side. The elaborate fountain in the courtyard is a mad mosaic of Talavera tile and Chinese porcelain. Upstairs is a treasure trove of Mexican baroque and medieval European paintings.
About 50m west of the plaza is the 16th-century Iglesia de San Jacinto and its peaceful gardens.
