Contest #464: Plaza Garibaldi, Mexico City, Mexico

Garibaldi is a space dedicated to Mexican music. Statues of the greats of Mariachi and other Mexican styles surround the plaza. One of those statues is of Juan Gabriel.

Alberto Aguilera Valadez, stage name Juan Gabriel, was big in Mexico. The president of Mexico said that everyone who claims to be Mexican knows at least 5 Juan Gabriel songs by heart. His death on August 28th triggered a wave of mourning all over the country, and nowhere was that more evident than in Plaza Garibaldi.

The plaza itself is named after José Garibaldi, a hero of the Mexican Revolution. In addition to the performance spaces, School of Mariachi and statues, there is a Tequila museum there.
