Plaza de la Liberación information
East of the cathedral, this plaza was a 1980s urban planner’s dream project – two whole blocks of colonial buildings were eviscerated to make way for this concrete slab.
On the north side of the plaza, next to the Museo Regional de Guadalajara, is the Palacio Legislativo . Distinguished by thick stone columns in its interior courtyard, this is where the state congress meets. Across the street to the east is the Palacio de Justicia . It was built in 1588 and began life as Guadalajara’s first nunnery. Duck inside to the interior stairwell and check out the 1965 mural by Guillermo Chávez depicting legendary Mexican lawmakers, including Benito Juárez.
