Calzada Guadalupe
Este paseo arbolado es parte de la avenida peatonal más larga del continente americano. Desde el siglo XVII ha sido espacio de encuentro social a través de peregrinaciones, rezo de novenarios y la procesión anual de la Virgen de Guadalupe a la catedral.

A lo largo de la calzada se construyó, en la primera mitad del siglo XX, un acueducto subterráneo que llevaba agua hasta la Caja de Agua, de donde se distribuía a otras fuentes ya desaparecidas. Las bancas de cantera que se encuentran en la calzada son de la época del acueducto. Existen otras dos fuentes, una frente al santuario y otra a la mitad de la calzada, conocida como “La Conchita”.

La calzada está flanqueada por importantes edificios de la época porfiriana como el Cuartel, el Centro de las Artes Bicentenario y el edificio de la Exposición Agrícola e Industrial Potosina; así como por importantes casonas.

meeting through pilgrimages, novena prayers, and the annual procession of the Virgen de Guadalupe to the cathedral.

A subterranean aqueduct, the length of the road, was built in the first half of the 19th century to channel water to the Water Reservoir, where it was then distributed to other fountains. The stone benches along the road are from the time of the aqueduct. There are another two fountains, one in front of the sanctuary and the other in the middle of the road, known as “La Conchita”.

The road is flanked by important buildings from Porfirian times, such as the Barracks, the Center of Bicentennial Arts and the Potosino Agricultural and Industrial Exhibition building; as well as grand important houses.
