Guadalajara Things to See and Do

Guadalajara has numerous churches, museums and unusual attractions to keep sightseers on the go. It also has murals galore. Besides the famous José Clemente Orozco murals, other ones are scattered throughout downtown buildings, mostly in stairwells. (For a bizarre 3-D nearly naked woman, check out the stairwell of Palacio de Justicia. For nightmarish visions, see the stairwell of the Presidencia Municipal de Guadalajara.) The official city tourism website is vive.guadalajara.gob.mx (in Spanish/English).
