Discover Popular art Mexico

Mexican art expresses itself as much in contemporary architecture, for example in major public buildings in Mexico City, as in the handicraft markets and antique boutiques. The notion of popular art becomes perfectly clear through the calendar of religious festivals: large cities as well as remote villages all vibrate then with the same fervour. There are enough religious and popular festivals to hope to have the opportunity to take part in a procession or a feria (with corridas and Mexican rodeos).
