A fun spot to people watch

A fun spot to hear free mariachi music and people watch... It gets crowded and is noisy, but you can also go into any of the bars/restaurants/shops that surround the park.

This is a fun location to people watch, eat, shop a little, and listen to live music such as the mariachis or the students preparing for the 'callejoneada' which is basically people caroling along the streets of the town for about 2 hours.

When the hot sun is beaming down the thick trees in this gathering spot can make it feel 10-degrees cooler. Plenty of benches to rest your sore feet. There is a gazebo in the center that hosts bands, mariachis and other performers.

This garden is very beautiful and is a must to visit. It's quite small but it's located in an area where you more or less has to pass to see everything in this city.

I love this area of the city, it is always lovely with various bars surrounding the square and people passing by. A number of bands are available to play music (mariachi and norteña). The whole area is vibrant with music echoing around and you are spoilt for choice of bars, but they do get busy.

Beautiful cosy little garden-square in the very heart of town. Anyone visiting Guanajuato will pass by sooner or later. Superschoener winziger Garten-Platz im Herz von Guanajuato. Alle die einmal in Guanajuato spazieren gehen werden hier durchlaufen.
