  • El jardín de la unión es uno de los más céntricos, no dejes de visitarlo! Hay restaurantes de comida mexicana para algún antojito, un kiosko desde dónde se ve el Pípila y las ninfas del teatro Juárez....  more »

  • Lovely Garden. You have the Teatro Juárez and the Restaurants are great. You can also find the estudiantil for the famous GTO callejoneadas.
  • Went to a birthday party and the garden is clean and green. It's really just a courtyard but very nice with a covered banquet hall/dance floor.
  • Plaza bonita pero evítenla durante el Cervantino. Atascado.
  • Pasaras por aqui si estas en GTO
  • Very nice area always good restaurants and bars
