We spent a couple of enjoyable hours window shopping around the Cathedral and people-watching, some of which was spent sitting on a bench in this plaza. The view of the Cathedral is impressive from here, although it's better from the southern exposure.

This plaza is surrounded by beautiful historic buildings such as the Cathedral and Teatro Degollado. Don't miss out on the opportunityt to visit the theatre where you can do a self-paced tour or engage one of the tour guides. It's a jewel of a building both inside and out.

A must see if you are near by. I wouldn't pay cab fare to be there. Interesting for what it contains as opposed to what it is. Good concert venue. Nice to walk across while viewing neighbouring buildings. People travelling across it. One large, paving stoned piece of concrete in an area where a little more green would be better.

The entire plaza is full of interesting things to see, buildings, courtyard, vendors, and interesting displays of artwork such as large brass chairs with very unusual shapes and images. Definitely you should considering going to walk around, especially in the morning or late afternoon.

Plaza de la Liberacion sits between two magnificent pieces of architecture, Teatro Degollado and Cathedral de Guadalajara. So the photo ops are there for the taking.

In the very heart of Central Guadalajara you will find this magnificent plaza to sit or walk around, have a snack and get to see locals just enjoing the day. Wonderful views for photographers, nice flowered garden. Surrounded by limestone buildings. Plenty of places to buy or eat. Shoe shine, tourist info booth, light rail station.

One of the first plazas I ever saw in Guadalajara, some 30 years ago, it has changed little in appearance. I know that new trees have been planted to replace the large older ones that were getting just too big for this plaza-and new lighting that shines up from the sidewalks onto the historical buildings surrounding it have been added....
