San Gabriel (formerly Venustiano Carranza) is a town and municipality, in Jalisco in central-western Mexico 141 km from the capital of Guadalajara. The municipality covers an area of 449.01 km². It was the birthplace of Mexican actor José Mojica, with the main street carrying his name. It's municipalities include Jiquilpan and other surrounding towns. The municipal president, Chabelo Ramos of the Party of the Democratic Revolution, currently holds power.
