- Miguel Bosé’s luxurious residence in Rancho San Francisco experiences a shocking security breach despite its elite status.
- The assailants meticulously executed the robbery, leaving Bosé and his family traumatized but unharmed in their Mexico City home.
- The incident raises concerns about safety, even in Mexico City’s most affluent neighborhoods, challenging the area’s perceived security.
In the heart of Mexico City’s Álvaro Obregón district lies the luxury subdivision of Rancho San Francisco. Nestled within the town of San Bartolo Ameyalco, this affluent enclave is home to some of the city’s elite, including renowned singer Miguel Bosé.
With each residence boasting terraces, gardens, and spacious rooms complemented by European-decorated bathrooms and the richness of fine woods, it stands as a symbol of opulence. Yet, on the evening of August 18, this emblem of luxury became the setting for a harrowing ordeal.
Despite the community’s reputation for stringent security, Bosé’s residence was targeted in a meticulously planned invasion. As the singer recounted on his Instagram account, “Dear friends of mine, on Friday night a commando of ten armed subjects broke into my home. They assaulted us, they had my children, the house staff and me tied up for more than two hours.”
He further detailed the trauma, sharing, “They took everything, including the car. Everything was very well studied and millimetered to make it short. We are fine. My children behaved like two brave men, admirable!”

Such an audacious act raises questions about the efficacy of the community’s defenses. After all, properties in Rancho San Francisco come with hefty price tags, ranging from 37 million 500 thousand to 60 million Mexican pesos, according to Inmuebles Metros Cúbicos. Other real estate agencies, such as Propiedades, have homes listed for between 40 and 79 million Mexican pesos.

For instance, a house with four bedrooms, five full bathrooms, and a dining room fit for 12 people is pegged at 54 million 974 thousand pesos in Cubic Meters.
Journalist Gustavo Adolfo Infante highlighted the rigorous nature of the community’s security protocols, noting that residents sometimes face challenges proving their residency. This revelation makes the robbery all the more shocking, particularly given the prominent security warnings outside Bosé’s home, which emphasize CCTV surveillance and the presence of armed guards.
Rancho San Francisco, with its rustic, wooded constructions showcasing tiles, wooden ceilings, parquet floors, and earth-toned aesthetics, has seen its share of controversies. Television presenter Inés Gómez Mont, another notable resident, has been a fugitive since 2021 amidst allegations of money laundering.
In light of Bosé’s traumatic experience, concerns regarding safety and security loom large. Such an incident starkly showcases the vulnerabilities that even the most fortified bastions of luxury can face in an ever-changing urban landscape.
