Jardín de Zaragoza
Swing by in the aftermoon and, if you’re lucky, you’ll catch a few mariachi tunes.
Zaragoza Gardens are circled by pink quarry-stone arches framing the Stela of Liberty, a monument which commemorates Hidalgo’s arrival in Aguascalientes after the defeat at Calderon Bridge on January 19th, 1811
To one side of the square is the Church of the Sacred Heart of Christ, built on the site of what was previously a hospital named “De Jesus”.
The church boasts a neo-baroque style. Construction began in 1943 and was completed in 1959.
