Some might say that the main attraction is the Fiesta Brava held in the Monumental Bullfight Plaza. However, The San Marcos Nationail Fair, the railway, the clocks, guava sweets, the deshilados (textile craft), and balustrade of San Marcos Park, temples, its architecture and artists are so ingrained in Aguascalientes like its Fiesta Grande. This marathon of activities gives life to this State that is left impregnated in the stones and the air.
