THE VERY HEART OF MEXICO ...
 
Guadalajara city is located in the central area of the republic of Mexico in the state of Jalisco. This city is very valuable because of its history, traditions, and people among many things.
It is also one of the most beautiful places you can't miss to visit when you travel to Mexico.

 
 
Guadalajara's downtown
 
It has a unique architectural and structural design (if you consider how old Guadalajara is). At the center  of the 'Big Plaza' the 'Catedral' stands tall overseeing the 'four minor plazas that surround it. One at the north, another at the south, as well as the east and west of it... As you can appreciate on the picture below-right.
