The colorful gazebo forms the center of all downtown activity. Built in 1871, the wooden gazebo features the intricate weaving that you only see in Mudejar art. The gazebo is a permanent feature of Plaza de la Constitución. Below it, there’s a fountain that is sometimes forgotten. Nearby are a pair of busts paying homage to Rafael Méndez and Ildefonso Illescas. The former brought the art of ornamental sphere-making to the town, the latter is the priest who strove to erect the Basílica de la Inmaculada Concepción. In the southwest corner of the square, a sculpture of the comedian Gaspar Henaine, better known as “Capulina” commemorates his birthplace.
