The original settlements of Milpa Alta offer outstanding, small-town hospitality even in the capital, and within one of the biggest cities of the world. The pueblos originarios are recognized for their having existed, and for having maintained a tradition, throughout the entire history of the Valley of Mexico.
Milpa Alta is centered even today around the Villa Milpa Alta, the biggest and most prominent of the original settlements. It makes a great introduction to the others.
Some of the towns date from truly ancient times. Others are more recent. But all of them are welcoming and maintain a robust industry welcoming visitors from near and far. The listings are intended to help you to see more of them.
