Mexico-On-Line » Guadalajara

guadalajara.gifGuadalajara is the capital city of the Mexican state of Jalisco, and is situated at an altitude of 1,600 meters, favouring it with a mild, spring-like climate.

Centro Historico, the historic downtown, is filled with colonial era buildings. It also boasts several important mural paintings by Jalisco-born José Clemente Orozco, one of Mexico's most important artists.

Tlaquepaque has an important shopping district, and the old town offers many interesting restaurants, galleries, a regional ceramics museum and a "Premio Nacional de la Ceramica" (National Ceramics Awards) museum. There is a large variety of shops where you can buy local pottery and handicrafts. "The Parian" is a square building in the heart of its downtown that houses a collection of 17 restaurant-bars and at the center has a traditional kiosk where mariachi groups and singers play for patrons. It's a great place to enjoy a cool drink on a hot day and listen to good music in a very Mexican setting.
