Named for the Mexican general who defeated the French at the battle of Puebla, May 5, 1862 = Cinco de Mayo - The square is flanked by the Casa Mayor (City Hall), the Palacio Gobierno (State executive offices) and the Catedral. It is dominated by a central ironwork bandstand. Compared to other Mexican cities, the central square is not as large and does not figure quite as importantly due to the huge amount of recent urban growth. Still, the leafy trees provide a bit of respite from the intense Sonoran sun and at holidays, the square is packed with humanity, celebrating under the red, white and green lights.
