Built in 1542

Beautiful archway built in 1542. Amazing that cars are driving through it constantly.
Note: daytime this area seems safe enough but I’m not sure I would recommend going there alone at night.

Nice Photo-op
Dec. 2019
The day tour buses stop to allow you to take photographs of this grand gate and your vehicle will pass through it so the experience is complete. Reminds me of the Arc de Triomphe in Paris, or India Gate in New Delhi...somewhat similar structures. if I recall what the guide said ...it was erected to celebrate the city's 400th birthday. WoW. Do spend a few minutes taking photographs and making memories.

but, if you are in that area, this monument to Mexican independence is well worth driving under or walking round.

Nice Arch
Jun. 2019
Los Arcos are very close to the Fountain of Minvera, so if you see one, check out the other. The Arches are two arches with one roof and do look different depending on which side you are on. There is a center concrete gutter than you can stand in to get a photo (just be careful of the traffic).

Nice landmark close to the Minerva

Nice architecture in an attractive part of town with trees and walking paths. The only downside is you can't go up in the arch to appreciate the design better. Love the blue and white tiles and lanterns embedded in the arch.

Great recreation of the original city gates at the western entrance to the city. It has an inscription from Charles V, emperor en the 1830's.

It does not move but it's really cool

The architectural design is impressive. This used to be one of the entrances to Guadalajara. It is a massive structure and worth making a detour to appreciate.

Too touristy
Mar. 2018 • Family
This area is modeled after a typical American Shopping Center w/o any regional flavor. This may be what you are looking for in a vacation, but was definitely not for us.
