  3. Parque Hidalgo


Earlier known as Parque Manuel Cepeda Peraza, this park's history goes back to the mid-19th Century when it was a lovely square with a fountain. It was christened as Parque Hidalgo in 1877 in an ode to Don Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla. But soon its name changed to Parque Cepeda Peraza in 1896. Despite its name changes, Parque Hidalgo as it is a great spot to feel the pulse of the city. Dotted with almond trees, this lush green space is a fine place to relax in shade or sit on a bench and read a book. Indulge in some people watching or chat up with local artisans who set up shop here on Thursdays.

Location:  398 Calle 59
