  • It is always forced to go to this garden is the center of action in Guanajuato. Loud with people but at the same time you know you're in the right place

  • My favourite place to hang out. Great for people watching and occasional and most pleasant interactions. Always an abundance of activity, especially in evenings. Full symphony performances on the gazebo. A magical place.
  • Beautiful landmark in the city. It used to be the Garden of the church of San Diego & part of a convent complex. Today is surrounded by restaurants & musicians that create a colourful ambient. There's wonderful live music in the kiosk every wednesday afternoon.
  • This is a little park, right in front of "Teatro Juárez". From coffee shops to bars & little restaurants, this place is a little corner to spend some time in the core of Guanajuato.
  • This Plaza comes alive! Guanajuato Symphony plays there through the week. It is always clean and safe.
  • Amazing place in the center of town, great place to avoid the heat of the day surrounded by live music and happy folk
