Plaza Reforma
Entre los siglos XVI y XVII, este sitio era ocupado por los españoles, mientras que los indígenas se concentraban en la Magdalena. En el siglo XIX, en esta área se encontraba una plaza con jardines andadores y tres portales. En 1909 se colocó el kiosco de cantería, con el proyecto del arquitecto Manuel Arévalo y la ejecución de Ramón Morales. En 1973 fue remodelada y se canceló el acceso vehicular, en esa intervención se eliminó el atrio de la parroquia colocándose una fuente en lo que fue la esquina del atrio y un pedestal con una cruz de hierro en el otro extremo, también se dio continuidad a los portales de cantería que rodean el jardín. La plaza Reforma es popularmente conocida como Miguel Hidalgo, esto a consecuencia del busto en honor al héroe, ubicada a un costado del kiosco.
