Located in the heart of the latino district of San Francisco is a little gem of a street where the houses are painted with latin-american centric murals.

These murals, which are painted on the garages, each have some sort of meaning and history. They are full of color, and offer a wide variety of creativity. Each mural has its own message.

Balmy St. A few blocks east of 24th street and Mission.

Price:
Free

Opening Hours:
24/7

How to get there:
From downtown, take mission street until 24th and head east.
