Mariachi music and tequila are two of the most recognized symbols of Mexico both inside and outside its borders. Both originated in Guadalajara, the second largest city in Mexico (after Mexico City) which is a forever- attractive destination that is well worth a visit away from day to day routine.
The capital of the state of Jalisco is located in western Mexico. Many dare to say that it is the most Mexican city because it represents the essence of the whole country. In addition, it enjoys a pleasant climate throughout the year, without too much heat or too cold, which makes it a magnificent and attractive place to visit at any time.
To travel to the “Perla Tapatía” as it is known, is to simultaneously enter into modernity and history. The city combines deep-rooted customs and traditions before and after the colonial era, along with the latest trends and cultural, architectural and technological advances. It is also called the Mexican Silicon Valley as it is one of the leading producers of technology and software.
In the beautiful and extensive historical center is the Guadalajara Cathedral, possibly its most emblematic and characteristic monument. The construction of this parish that combines different baroque, gothic and neoclassical styles began in 1561 and is as old as the city itself. You can contemplate and admire it from the four squares that surround it in the form of a cross,that you must also visit, namely Plaza de la Liberación, Plaza Guadalajara, Plaza de Armas and the Rotonda de los Jaliscienses Ilustres.
Other architectural jewels of the center are the Degollado Theater and the Cabañas Cultural Institute. Both buildings were erected in the 19th century and have witnessed the passage of time and historical moments in a city. Also, you cannot leave Guadalajara without having tasted its most delicious and well-known native dish, the ‘tortas ahogadas’. It would be a sacrilege if you left without trying them!
You can also take advantage of your trip to Guadalajara to discover other essential places to see around the city such as the agave landscape and old industrial tequila facilities, declared World Heritage by UNESCO in 2006, and two of its magical neighboring towns like Tequila or Ajijic, the latter is located on the shores of Lake Chapala, the largest in Mexico.
