Plaza Garibaldi, Mexico City

2.4
Discover the center of mariachi music at Plaza Garibaldi, a historic square closely linked with Mexican folk music. Stemming from the golden age of Mexican cinema from the 1930s to the 1950s, when scenes set in the square would show leading men singing mariachi songs to their love interests, mariachi bands fill the square with song. Watch the bands play and sing in traditional dress, along with jarochos playing folks songs from Veracruz, and norteno bands playing music from the north of the country. Though rejuvenated and revitalized in recent years, the square still has a seedy reputation, so watch out for scammers and thieves targeting tourists.

  • Very sad visit this place that looks so different in photos, there is no Mariachi elegant and well positioned as one always thinks of the Mexican mariachis... to get we came walking and around there are many indigence and drug addicts on the streets really I had getting my watch and save it porq gave me fear on the road... When you finally reach Piazza garibaldi there are two three poorly dressed mariachi and the truth not find it me beautiful. The only thing rico is mezcal in Mutem being the only decent place p be awhile.

  • A place to enjoy delicious seafood and a good haircut. Entertained by live music, dance or relax. It has area of juegor for the children and a good environment. Consumption is not expensive and your environment is familiar. Really you can have a great time.
