Mexico City Neighborhoods

Colonia Roma

Roma Nouveau

In the early 1900's Colonia Roma Norte turned to be the modern side of Mexico City, attracting prestigious families who built their mansions, as well as famous intellectuals and artists. Today lives a vivid renaissance, based on the artistic and culinary scene.

The Jewish community has given Roma a special flavor and today's chefs visit local markets to get their supplies, locals enjoy fresh food from vendors and writers have got inspiration from its cafes. The colonia is also the name and location for the celebrated Roma fil. A flash-back to the 1970's!
