Avenida Lopez Mateos
The four blocks of this avenue between Calle Castillo and Avenida Riveroll, also known as Calle Primera, are the busiest for shopping and soaking up the tourist atmosphere. This is the center of the action in Ensenada, flanked on either end by everything from restaurants and hotels to leather and silver businesses. Avenida Lopez Mateos has a store for everyone, whether you want to have a cappuccino while munching on delectable fish or purchase a poncho and embroidered textiles.
Museo de Historia
It is best to start at the beginning of the Ensenada story in order to completely comprehend it. The History Museum of Ensenada is worth seeing for this reason. The finest spot to get a thorough understanding of the history of the area, from pre-Hispanic periods through the Spanish Colonial conquest and up to the present, is here. The history of Ensenada is brought to life through antiques like beads and pots, as well as old images and contemporary gardens. Even more intriguing is the museum’s location within the Rivera del Pacifico structure, which in the early 20th century during Prohibition housed an opulent casino.
The Plaza Civica, Ensenada’s center, is where everything happens. A trip across this main plaza will provide insight into some significant historical occurrences in Mexico. Locals refer to the area as “Three Heads Park” because it contains three enormous golden busts of historical luminaries from Mexico. View the busts of some of the nation’s more illustrious individuals, including Benito Juarez, Miguel Hidalgo, and Venustiano Carranza. Check out the plaques on each bust to learn more about each person represented.
