If you want to truly experience Aguascalientes, the best thing to do is pop into the four neighborhoods that best preserve the essence of years past: Guadalupe, San Marcos, Encino, and La Estación. 

San Marcos 

One of the capital’s most traditional neighborhoods, it hosts Feria Nacional de San Marcos during April and May. We recommend visiting Templo y Jardín de San Marcos, Plaza de Toros bullring, Andador J. Pani pedestrian street, and the fairgrounds, called Zona Ferial. 


In this neighborhood, you can visit Jardín y Templo de Guadalupe, considered one of the city’s most important and beautiful joint park and church. The interior of the church holds an image of the Virgen de Guadalupe painted by José de Alcíbar in 1777. 

Encino or Triana 

This is one of the city’s quietest neighborhoods. But, every November when it honors its patron saint, Cristo Negro del Encino, the entire area lives it up in celebration of the black Christ. 

La Estación 

Here, you can get a closer look at Aguascalientes’ railroad past. You have to stop into the Complejo Ferrocarrilero Tres Centurias, which exhibits the remains of railroad shops, and in Plaza de las Tres Centurias you will discover one of the most beautiful buildings of the time. This area is also home to the Macro Espacio para la Cultura y las Artes (MECA) cultural center, the quaint Colonia Ferronales rail neighborhood, La Alameda park, lovely Centro Cultural Los Arquitos, Baños de Ojocaliente hot springs bathhouse, and La Maestranza, where you can learn about railroad history through a light and sound show.
