El Parián (shopping arcade)

The pasaje comercial El Parián (Commercial Passage El Parián) is a shopping arcade with shops and restaurants in Colonia Roma.

It is located in the Colonia Roma on Avenida Álvaro Obregón number 130 in the Cuauhtémoc Borough in Mexico City.

“El Parián” (which means “The Market”), began as a commercial passage in 1883. After the 1985 Mexico City earthquake it was occupied by the earthquake´s victims, then it became a market, and it was finally turned into a commercial and cultural passage with stores and restaurants. Today it is one of the symbols of the rebirth of the Colonia Roma.
