What a fabulous array of home furnishings and decor items in the shops, plus knick-knacks, jewelry, clothing, shoes, crafts, leather goods and so much more in the tents. It's huge so have a good breakfast (or buy one from the many vendors walking through the market or at the multiple food stalls), wear comfy shoes and a hat and take water.

There are many beautiful shops here. Sergio Bustamente Gallery is always our favorite. He is such a wonderfully talented artist! What an imagination this man has! Don't miss this. Also has a very lovely selection of interesting jewelry. I received an early birthday present today, which I love.

Cool Gothic style church in the historic center. Very picturesque and definitely worth a visit. Lots of other cool things to see nearby.

Locals recommended seen the Cerro De La Reyna. Save yourself the walk, get a mototaxi. Once we arrived the first thing I saw was horses and ponies. For a small fee you can ride the horse around the perimeter of the church. Not crowded at all (Sunday). There is a small church which was not opened. I snapped a couple of good pictures and headed down to the plaza. I do hope you get to see the horses, that was the highlight for my kids.

This view pertains only to the ceramic museum that is housed adjacent to El Refugio. Every year for 40 or so years the Center holds a completion for ceramic artists from around Mexico. The museum houses many of the award winners from this competition. The work is fantastic. The level of talent in these pieces far exceeds what one can see in the regional museum of ceramic art on Calle Independencia. I can't speak about the rest of the Centro Cultural El Refugio but the ceramic museum there is fantastic.

Come and enjoy a delicious culinary, cultural and artistic experience in one of the most beautiful landmarks in the Guadalajara Metropolitan area.
We both were very pleased with Amaya's strolling tour to eating and drinking spots with much fascinating information about regional food, drink, history, and culture.

Opened in 1886, this large neo-Classical building is home to the city's opera and orchestra.
Built in the mid-1800's, the Teatro Degollado was to fill a niche for a nice theater in those days. Now Guadalajara has plenty Theaters but the Degollado is one of the most (if not THE most) notable one for its architecture and finesse of the interiors. Worth a few minutes to appreciate it and to go to the outside back of the building and visit the Fountain of Guadalajara founders.
... Of course worth even more if you get tickets for some events. We had the fortune to go to the Ballet Folklorico de la Universidad de Guadalajara and it was amazing! If you plan to travel to Guadalajara you should check if the Degollado has some upcoming shows of your liking and buy tickets ahead.

Strolling through the streets of Tlaquepaque, widow shopping, or searching for unusual pieces for your home is a wonderful experience. You can easily spend a day, or a few hours. Take a meal break in one of the local restaurants and listen to a women's Mariachi band - when available. If you are not shopped out already, continue on to Tonala for an array of "everything for the home". My friend ordered exquisite furniture made of termite resistant Primavera wood that was so reasonably priced. Although a couple of weeks late because they are so busy manufacturing, the furniture was delivered free to his home. We furnished and decorated most of his new condo in one day! In addition to well priced furniture, you can pick up glassware, art, lamps, tableware, wall decorations, and furniture - at most excellent prices.
