This structure/park contains statues of some of the people who have contributed to the growth of Guadalajara. It is also where the hop on hop off bus originates. Nice benches to sit on.

La Retonda is surrounded by sculptures of famous people to the city of Guadalajara. They contributed a lot both to Mexico and Jalisco. Worth the visit to know the history of this city.

a nice place, one of Guadalajara landmarks, but dirty and surrounded by homeless people who trash lots of things there.

This is a beautiful park to sit and watch the bustling of the city. Very peaceful. The taxation tours leave from her so there are lots of people selling hats and snacks. I wish you could walk into the rotund but it's gated off.

A nice gardened park where a series of simple metal sculptures are placed as hommage to a select group of public persons among whom politicians, artists, intelectuals. Nice neighbourhood to walk arround.

This rotunda is on Hidalgo, across the street from the Cathedral. Around the rotunda are statues of some of the famous, historic and cultural icons of this diversified state. It is an easy way to learn about the men and women who have contributed to the greatness of both their country and their home state. It is easy to walk... More
