The eleven Pueblos Originarios of Álvaro Obregón far outdate the current territory. It's a highly complex part of the city where true urban neighborhoods give way to rural and semi-urban small towns and isolated barries.
Rural areas are often surrounded by forested mountains. One peak reaches 3800 meters above sea level. The Magdalena River, the last true river in Mexico City crosses Álvaro Obregón. It seems to emphasize the area's rocky, rugged history and landscape. Efforts are currently underway to restore the river.
In the entries below you'll find more information about each of the Pueblos Originarios, their histories and current attractions.
