“Mini-history lesson”

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.

“historic sight”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2014

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.

“Quiet afternoon”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

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.
