This is a lovely square to sit in and watch the world go by. The only thing is that's really small and the gazebo is down at one end. That means that all the activity is centered around one part of the jardin. The restaurants...More

If you need a shady spot to sit and take a break, this is it. We stopped at one of the restaurants on the Jardin for guacamole and a beer. Great place to sit and watch all the holiday tourists go by!

The fun, busy hub of this charming town! Surrounded by restaraunts, hotels and cafes it’s the place to meet, relax or people watch anytime of day. The square comes alive at night with food vendors, mariachi bands and tons of locals and tourists.

Sit beneath the square-shaped trees in one of many park benches and watch the world go by. The best kept park square in GTO's tourist zone, across Calle de Sopena from the exquisite facade of Teatro Juarez.

I love this square and the perfectly cut trees around it, as well as the athmosphere that is so joyful! Mariachis singing, estudiantinas gathering early at night for the callejoneadas. The place is romantic, especially at night, you can get a drink or a meal...More

Beautiful place, surrounded by excellent bars and restaurants, and right across the street from Teatro Juarez. If you are eating outside, however, be expecting people to come up to you, trying to sell songs or miscellaneous items. Nonetheless, this is a must see.
