Guadalajara

"The Pearl of the West" is the affectionate Guadalajara's Coat of Arms name that the local residents have for Mexico's second largest city, Guadalajara. Located in the west-central part of the country in the state of Jalisco, the beautiful Colonial city of Guadalajara sits on a high plateau more than 5,000 feet above sea level. The city was founded in 1542 by the Spanish conquistador, Nuńo de Guzmán. Even today, the downtown area of Guadalajara is filled with charming Colonial buildings dating from the 1600's.

Guadalajara today, is fast becoming a center for many industries that have recently entered Mexico as a result of NAFTA. (North American Free Trade Agreement) Many international companies have chosen Guadalajara as their home base, instead of the capital of Mexico City, Cityscape of Puerto Vallarta because of the quality of life it offers and its strategic location. As a result of the many new toll roads that have been built throughout Mexico, Guadalajara is only a little more than four hours from Mexico City and three hours to the beach resorts of Puerto Vallarta and Manzanillo. Even Laredo, Texas is only twelve hours away and the 1,000 mile trip to El Paso can be accomplished in less than 18 hours, the great majority of which by 4-lane highways.

Guadalajara's Highways and Biways

If you are thinking of visiting Guadalajara as a tourist, the city has much to offer. Interestingly, many foreigners have even chosen Guadalajara as the location for their retirement. The city has one of the largest colonies of foreigners (mostly American and Canadian) of any city in the world.Guadalajara's City Scene

Guadalajara is a 450 year old city of 5 million people with so much culture and sophistication. Incidentally, the name Guadalajara comes from the Arabic or Moorish word, "Wad-al-jidara" which means "river of stones". The Tapitios (the name for the locals) are proud of their beautiful city and eager to introduce you to its beauty and charm. The museums, art centers, the Degollado Theater, the beautiful city parks, churches and exciting markets will fill your days with sights and sounds of Mexico that you will never forget!

Guadalajara


Cultural Institute Cabańas
Instituto Cultural Cabańas




The Hospicio Cabańas in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico, a World Heritage Site, is one of the oldest and largest hospital complexes in Spanish America.

The complex was founded in 1791 by the Bishop of Guadalajara in order to combine the functions of a workhouse, hospital, orphanage, and almshouse. It owes its name to Juan Ruiz de Cabańas who was appointed to the see of Guadalajara in 1796 and engaged Manuel Tolsá, a renowned architect from Mexico City, to design the structure.

Tolsá's design was based on classic examples such as Les Invalides in Paris and El Escorial near Madrid. The buildings form a rectangle measuring 164 m by 145 m. These are single-storey structures which are 7.5 m in height. The chapel is twice as high and has a dome rising to 32.5 m. The complex is erected on one level, "so as to facilitate the movement of the sick, the aged, and children.


Following the death of Cabańas in 1823, construction continued until 1829. Although it served for a time as a barracks in the mid-19th century, the hospital lasted well into the 20th century and continued to function until 1980, when the Cabańas Cultural Institute, with affiliated schools for arts and crafts, moved in. The highlight of the interior decoration is a series of monumental frescoes by José Clemente Orozco, including one of his most famed creations, the allegory of The Man of Fire (1936–39).
