Plaza de los Mariachis (Mariachis square)

Guadalajara

When arrive to the city, a must-see is Plaza de los Mariachis (Mariachis Square), the meeting point of these popular Guadalajara musicians and the place to experience Mexican folklore. The square is located at the old neighborhood of San Juan de Dios, in the Historical Center from the capital of Jalisco.

Dressed in their typical charro costume, you’ll see a group of musicians performing Mexican music in every corner of the plaza. Surrounded by old mansions with bars and restaurants that offer a variety of snacks, tequila and live music.

Throughout history, Mexican artists/singers such as José Alfredo Jiménez, Vicente Fernández and Mariachi de Tecalitlán, among others, appeared to perform there.

The square has more than 100 years of tradition, offers a wide variety of shows, gastronomic, cultural and tourist services.

On one side of the square you will see the Temple of San Juan de Dios, built in 1726, distinguished by having one of the simplest and most austere facades of all the churches in the Historical Center.

Its triple niche stands out preserving three quarry sculptures: The Lady of Dolores, San Antonio, and San José. Its main atrium was built in white marble with neoclassical altarpieces.
