And long ago in the center of Mexico, was the quaint little town of San Ángel.
San Ángel is a Mexican town in Mexico in the Land of the Living where the townspeople are born, raised and live their lives. The town is in the shape of a guitar floating in the middle of a lake in the Land of the Living. It is the centre of the universe and is directly above the Land of the Remembered and the Land of the Forgotten.
It is in the centre of San Ángel, where the pigs escape into near the beginning of the movie, where Manolo plays his guitar with Pepe, Pablo and Pancho during 'I Will Wait' and where the townspeople battle Chakal and his banditos at the end of the movie. There is a large statue of Captain Mondragon and a platform that General Posada stands on just before the pigs 'invade'.
