This is a great spot to relax and take a break while walking around the historical center. There are plenty of benches to sit, relax and people watch. The historic buildings around the plaza were amazing.

Cathedral, theater, regional art museum, Plaza of the Illustrious Men (women now) of Jalisco and older government buildings all abut the plaza. Parking can be a hassle.
