If you feel like visiting a market on Saturday, take a trip to Plaza San Jacinto, located in the San Ángel district. Bazar Sábado is a superb handicrafts market that has created quite a name for this plaza. The plaza itself has a turbulent history: the main building of the Bazar was used by invading soldiers from the US and France. It is also the place where more than 50 Irish soldiers who belonged to the Saint Patrick's Battalion died while trying to help the Mexicans repel the invading US armed forces.
