The Degollado is a beautiful building inside and outside where I have seen opera, symphony, Shakespearean plays and more. I highly recommend going here while you are in downtown Guadalajara; it's one of our little gems.

Everyone told me to tour this beautiful Roman architectural building. Unfortunately, on the day we visited, we could only walk into the lobby.

This is an iconic city's site. It houses many cultural activities during the year. Even if one does not have the time to attend to one of those cultural events a look from the outside shows the beauty of this place. There's a beautiful café just outside the building serving deli products, desserts, and hot drinks A nice experience for... More
