Mazatlan's Plaza Machado…
The Historical and cultural center of Mazatlan
Mazatlan's Plazuela Machado is one of the oldest plazas in Mazatlan, built in the year 1837
under the auspices of a wealthy trader in silver cloth and pearls, Don Juan Nepomuceno Machado.
Featuring architecture influenced by the French and Spanish, the recently restored Plaza Machado
brings back an era when Mazatlecáns spent leisurely afternoons and evenings around city plazas.
Today the restored 18th century buildings feature sidewalk cafés, theaters, a museum, hotel and
musical events throughout the year.
