The city’s vibrant neighborhoods showcase its cultural diversity, with each district offering a distinct atmosphere and flavor.

A visit to one of the city’s iconic markets, such as Mercado de la Merced or Mercado Roma, offers a sensory feast, where vibrant colors, aromatic spices, and lively conversations create an immersive cultural experience.
