HANDICRAFTS

-Markets or tianguis: tremulous, heart biting of a thousand colours, aromas and flavours; uproars, arguments, bargaining, prices that are said, prices that are discussed; to see and buy… but, what to buy?

You cannot fail to visit the Benito Juarez and Veinte de Noviembre Markets, located two blocks away from the Zócalo. The former is one of the largest in the city and a great number of handicraft products, amongst other things, are offered at its sell stands; whilst you will find flowers, fruits and typical food in the latter.

Amongst the towns travellers should take into account, we have:
