My husband and I live in Ensenada and enjoy the "Plaza of the Three Heads" or "Plaza de las Tres Cabezas." This civic and cultural attraction opened in September 1974 to honor three Mexican historical icons.

We shared the view from Plaza Civica. Some very interesting Mexican people. Included were many politicians. I would not go back again---there are so many--restaurants, etc.

At plaza Civica you'll find the three heads - we call them Manny mo & Jack- but they are past presidents I think - anyway- always the busy plaza with lots of fun events either very mexican, or food oriented-- Ensenada is in the top 10 of foodie places in NORTH AMERICA!! you won't go home hungry!!

FYI - Google Maps and other sources call this the Plaza de Las Tres Cabezas. I couldn't find it on Google until I realized the name was not Plaza Civica.

It is an interesesting spot for a quick look. Mexico has had a very turbulent political history. Interesting to see some of their past leaders portrayed.
