Number 1 Classic mexican mariachi place for locals with grate ambiance, food, tequilas and much more.

This is how Musical Garibaldi Square starts. During 1940 the tenampas gold age fortified the palce. From then on many movies has been rolled in this venue with the best local actors, writers, scripters, poets. in 1976 it had the major refresh.
