"Drive Under a Big, Yellow Arch" Top 5 Page for this destination Guadalajara Things to Do Tip by Jetgirly

Guadalajara Things to Do: 74 reviews and 137 photos

If you enjoy sitting on benches and sending mail (see my infamous Mexico City tips), you'll LOVE driving under a big, yellow arch! Los Arcos del Tercer Milenio are huge yellow arches that cross the road where Mariano Otero and Lazaro Cardenas meet (west of the city center). These huge yellow arches were constructed in 2001 and designed by architect Enrique Carbajal González (working under the pseudonym of Sebastian). They consist of more than 1000 tonnes of metal and have a surface area of 17,000 square meters. They truly are a sight to see, so if you happen to be out on the west side of the city, ask your taxi driver to drive past Los Arcos del Tercer Milenio on your way home.

Address: Lazaro Cardenas and Mariano Otero
Directions: Colonia Jardines del Bosque.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
