The Llano Park

General Morelos created it to commemorate the civic-religious festival that celebrated the victory of the Movement of Independence. In 1894 a monument with a statue of Benito Juárez was placed in the park.

The monument is characterized by its nationalist style of architecture. During the middle of the twentieth century the park served as zoo, which was closed in 1970, the year that the park was redesigned as it is at present.

The park is located in the northwestern part of the Centro Histórico, in front of the Church of Guadalupe. El Llano is approximately 250 meters long and 75 meters wide. It has gardens, walkways, benches, and four large fountains.
