Wandering the narrow streets, you’ll stumble upon hidden plazas, ornate churches and ancient monasteries. The city is also home to some of Mexico’s most famous artisans, who still practise traditional crafts such as weaving and pottery-making. Don’t miss the lively evening scene, when the squares come alive with mariachi bands and street food vendors.
