Very pleasant, green public garden/plaza in the heart of old Guanajuato. Great spot to sit and enjoy music and people watch any time of day.

Nice area in the middle of the historical centre surrounded by restaurants, a theatre, a church, numerous vendors, and strolling mariachi bands. Very lively and a great place to people watch.

A beautiful plaza with great views of amazing buildings, some awesome dinning options, some others are ok. Usually very crowded.

I hung out here for a weekend and enjoyed the vibrant atmosphere, live music and street cafes. A bustling but relaxing place to hang out for a couple of hours.
