“Go as far as you can”

to spot the truly unique works of art that wait for you at the end. You'll know what I mean when you get there - large, touchable and mind-blowing!

“NOT in Guadalajara in tlaquepaque! And not called Calle Idependencia; Plaza Parian”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2012 via mobile

Once we got the suburb correct which took us awhile because the taxi did not recognize Calle Independencia nor the hotel staff, because it's not known by the street, apparently there are several streets named this in all suburbs. This is Plaza Parian in Tlaquepaque. The city name needs to be changed to Tlaquepaque.
Amazing !!!! All reviews are correct! A MUST VISIT! We visited twice during our stay.

“If you visit ONE predestrian street in Mexico, this is it.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2012

A gorgeous pedestrian street that has everything: small traditional shops, beautiful upscale shops that sell jewellery, antiques and fabulous household items, a nice pottery museums, cafes and restaurants, and ends up in the center of town. The beauty of Tlaquepaque is that it is no Disneyland ... people live and work in this beautiful town. Favourite stops are: Adobe (a shop that sells quality mexican crafts and a good restaurant under one roof), Galeria Sergio Bustamante (fantastic jewels and sculpture), Real San Pedro (new restaurant, good quality food, good environment), Rodo Padilla shop (the famous "chubby guys" ceramics). Can´t miss this street! We locals go for a nice stroll , nice meal and a hand made ice cream sold by a guy impecably dressed in ranch clothes and a hat.

“Our friends love this shopping street”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2012

This pedestrian street is a visual delight, and it's packed with restaurants, shops, and galleries, ranging from colorful souvenir stands to the high-end gallery of artist/sculptor Sergio Bustamante. Stop in to see the Ceramic Museum (free). When guests come to visit us in Mexico, they always enjoy a stroll along Calle Independencia.
