477 Anniversary of Guadalajara

illuminating the city with notes of Mariachi, flocklor and dance.

477 years ago an February 14th. The inauguration of the Guadalajara foundation was remembered with nostalgia. Throughout the years the traditions and the provincial soul of this growing city are maintained. This year is commemorated with an event called GDLUZ (Guadalajara Ligth), illuminating the city with notes of Mariachi, flocklor and dance.

After “waking up” to the city with the mañanitas, the Mayor of Guadalajara, Ismael del Toro, made the traditional game of picón and distributed some roses, this because Guadalajara has been cataloged as “The City of Roses.”

Then, the central esplanade was left in the dark to later witness an explosion of color, mariachi music and folk dancing by the Guadalajara Guadalajara Ballet. Then, the Tapatío DJ Sachary and Renzo Cubas, a Costa Rican lighting designer who works in Las Vegas, made a sonorous and visual mix that included projections in the 16 meter high agave. Later the party closed with the interpretation of “Guadalajara“, the hymn of the City in mariachi tones, which was crowned with a sight spectacle of pyrotechnic games that came from the upper part of the Cathedral and the Degollado Theater.

One of the best ways to discover a city is through its food, and in Guadalajara it could not be different.
Heir to deep Mexican traditions, dishes such as meats in their juice, birria tatemada, the succulent pozole or the delicious drowned cakes made with salty bean and dipped in tomato sauce are part of the traditional Tapatía gastronomy.
