Since 2012, the Centro Histórico has officially become known as the Corredor Cultural Madero. The goal is to bring art to the streets and give exposure to artists outside of the typical commercial circle.
With construction efforts aimed at preserving the Centro, streets like Madero and Regina have helped this area gain presence one of the most pleasant walking areas of the city.
Madero was included in the Cultural Corredor program in the Centro Histórico, with shops, bookstores, bars, cafés and museums close to the zone where the corridor’s programs unite.
In the following months, they will have eopedn four cultural corridors: in Garibaldi, the El Aguilita Plaza, and the atrium of the Temple of Jesús María.
