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.
