The Jardín Unión is located directly opposite the Teatro Juarez and is a beautiful place to relax, with its large trees that provide a cool shade.
This plaza is surrounded by restaurants and musicians who enliven the environment, and on weekends there is banda music starting at 7:00 p.m.
During colonial times, this square was called the Plaza de San Diego, so named for the church of the same name that is next to the Teatro Juarez. Here there also used to be a market, bullfights and other town celebrations.
In 1836 the first trees were planted, and by 1861 it had become the beautiful triangular park that we currently enjoy, with its benches and lanterns. The kiosk was erected during Porfirio’s time, giving the perfect setting to the first block of the city.r09
