  • Another of the emblematic places in Jalisco, no doubt you have to visit, in addition to make your visit to the Virgin of Zapopan is has a beautiful architecture. And on the Esplanade you will find various Mexican antojitos.

  • It is traditional, it is not the best of all, but is something symbolic and perhaps is something that should be visited in zapopan, don't forget to go to "The Inn of the Angel"
