The Roma neighborhood, officially known as Colonia Roma, was developed in the late 19th and early 20th centuries as a residential area for the wealthy, outside the confines of Mexico City’s then-center.

It showcases a mix of architectural styles, from Art Deco to Neo-classical and Beaux-Arts, reflecting its history and the cultural shifts of Mexico.

Over time, it transformed into a dynamic, eclectic neighborhood, becoming a hub for the creative community.

What makes Roma special is its unique blend of historical significance and contemporary culture. It has become a cultural hotspot, renowned for its artistic scene, culinary diversity, and vibrant nightlife.

The neighborhood’s tree-lined streets, parks, and plazas are interspersed with a variety of boutiques, galleries, and restaurants, making it a lively and attractive area for both residents and visitors.

Its preservation of architectural heritage alongside the promotion of modern arts and gastronomy creates a distinctive, cosmopolitan atmosphere that encapsulates the essence of Mexico City’s evolution.
