Catedral de Irapuato

Irapuato is a little city located in the state of Guanajuato. In spite of being a little city it has a lot of culture and historical monuments. For example there are the ” fuentes danzarinas”.  This fountain is located in the downtown of the city, outside a market called “Hidalgo” . Templo del HospitalitoAlso it has a variety of churches and temples. The most well-known are  the Templo de San Francisquito, Santuario de la Soledad, Templo de San José, Parroquia del Sagrado Corazón de Jesús, Templo de San Juan Bosco, and el Templo del Hospitalito. It doesn’t have a lot museums, and the only one is small but there you can learn about the history of Irapuato.

We can find a lot of monuments around the city like the Fuente de los delfines called too Fuente Florentina, Monumento a Japón, Monumento a Don Vasco de Quiroga, Busto a Luis Donaldo Colosio Murrieta, Monumento a la bandera, etc.

Escultura de San Juan BoscoWe also have a “cultural house.” There you can learn a lot of cultural and art activities, also organize events in different season of the year. In these events, people can see what the students had done in their classes.

In the downtown you can find places that have existed since our ancestors to our days, being in use.

    The information and pictures from this article are beautiful, i wish someday I could visit your town. I live in a small town with not many things to do, I will admit there are some things you can do, just not a lot. In our town we have a small museum that has fossils of mammoths. The museum also has the first helicopter invented, I think you would like the museums here. The museums in your town look very interesting i would love to visit them sometime.

    Hi, my name is Zach and I was reading you this part of your blog and I noticed that your country has a lot more than places and things to do there than here in Goodland, Kansas. Where I am from we only have one museum and only 4500 as our population. So as you can see we are much more smaller than you are. I also want to say that your town is very beautiful. The only kind of beauty that we have is the manny fields of farm land; if you like that kind of thing. I enjoined reading this part of your blog, and I hope that some day I can visit your country.
