This is a small plaza with the major attraction being the statute The picture is it. I would go out of my way to see this, however, if you are in the vicinity stop by.There are shops and restaurants food, etc. but nothing out of the ordinary.

It is a great cool statue. There are many guides who can explain about the meaning about this statue. So, it is better to grab a guide to take a walking tour around the central of the city including this statue than walking by yourselves and you are coming out with just a statue.

Is great for a picture with friends or family. Is located in the middle of many many shops to purchase jewelry, food & about everything. Is fun actually to walk there.

Nice sculpture. Very similar to the seal of arms in Madrid, Spain. Good place for pictures. Don't leave the main corridor. SECURITY ALERT in Guadalajara - Street shootings, kidnappings, drug planting at the ariport. If unnecessary, DON'T TRAVEL TO GUADALAJARA.
