The second-largest city in Mexico, the birthplace of mariachi, and home of the Mexican Hay Dance – Jarabe Tapatio, locally – this capital of the state of Jalisco is more recently known as the country’s “Silicon Valley”. Its rich history spans back to 1542, when it was founded by royal Spanish decree; the history, culture, and colonial splendor are an urban complement to the more commonly visited coasts.
With a minimum of 15 languages spoken by its original pre-colonial inhabitants, Guadalajara’s diverse influences are far-reaching. More than 40 consulates are present among its many parks, signature plazas, and baroque Government Palace. Not far from the cathedral, no fewer than eight work-recognized universities attract students and scholars, and craftsmen ply their trade even in this modern age. Artists, including fashion designers, also flock to this destination, which hosts the country’s biggest event in fashion, Intermoda. A city whose graceful arcades, bubbling fountains, winding promenades, lovely architecture, and mariachi bands are never far, inspiration is just as close in Guadalajara.
