I like the feel of this plaza. It is very relaxed and the Club Cafe has very good coffee. The food in the restaurants is not great but it is worth it just to have a table in this wonderful square.

It's not easy to find one's way to this plaza but there are enough interesting things in it and in the surrounding area to stop by. Not sure it's worth a special trip to find it, though.

This is one of a number of pleasant malls with manicured trees and old historical buildings in Guanajuato.It was larger and more open than some and worth a visit.

Beautiful old trees, precious colonial architecture, fine open space, artists, troubadours, music, restaurants for all purses, this is my favorite hangout spot in Guanajuato, particularly compared with the slightly claustrophobic Jardin de la Union. I had lunch here, a nice plate of enchiladas verdes with...More

Quiet, picturesque, benches under trees or in the sun. This plaza has some restaurants and cafés. Lots of open space for kids to play.

This is one of my favorite plazas in Guanajuato. It's above the streets and closed off to traffic. There are big old trees and benches, and lots of cafes and restaurants where you can sit outdoors and have a drink or meal.

There is always a lot happening in this quaint spot. Adjacent restaurants and a few shops are part of the draw. You can sit in the shade and watch the world go by.
