Museo de Arte de Carrillo Gil

I’ve been to this museum many times before, and have existing posts about it. But I’ve never added it to my fancy pants Bing map, and it’s worth putting up there. So now it is – map no. 34. It’s a nice place to head on a Sunday. There’s a goodly collection of paintings by Rivera, Siqueiros and the gang.

San Angel, the town it’s in, has some nice quiet streets, parks, markets, convents and restaurants. The prices can be exhorbitant. Or worse – we went into a few little stores peddling traditional painted boxes and alebrijes that were marking up the retail price by as much as 1,000%. Some nice wooden boxes that can be had for a few hundred pesos elsewhere had tags on them demanding 8,000 pesos. Rip off? Virtually criminal….
