Vía RecreActiva Architecture and Heritage for Everyone

Since 2004, Guadalajara City Council has decided to close 11 kilometers of one of the City’s main avenues every Sunday from 8-14 hrs. in order to create a pedestrian and cycling route from downtown to midtown.
This route is sort of a “time line” of the city given that the constructive and urban periods run from Guadalajara’s Foundation to Modern Guadalajara Metropolis of the 1970´s.
As much as 120,000 locals cover every Sunday the promenade: families, students, young and old people, physically disabled people…
The route, containing more than 400 years of history, is immensely charged with cultural, economic and social richness.
