This is a grouping of statues of Guadalajara residents who are famous for something they did when alive. Artistically speaking, they are nothing out of the ordinary. They would be of interest to those with an interest in history. Free, and fast.

The statues are not exactly spectacular, but it was obviosuly a good idea of the local Government to immortalise all its great sons form poets to scholars

The Rotonda is beautiful, specially at night when is illuminated. You'll feel like you're in Europe.

Nice place, a lot of gardens and benches where you can sit and drink a coffee and people-watch. It is very crowded on the weekend with lots of vendors and tourists. Overlooking the rotonda, you find the Sandy's restaurant which is great for lunch and...More

A lovely park setting by the Zócalo so a great place to walk and sightsee. Walk the blocks around the Cathedral, Government buildings and see the murals and enjoy the day

It is just worth it to walk through this garden where honorable men from this city are represented with statues. It just a quick visit next to the cathedral.
