Plaza Cívica de la Patria
Plaza Cívica, or Civic Plaza, is Ensenada's central square, buzzing with locals and visitors. Busts of some of Mexico's most important historical figures populate the plaza, along with vendors selling everything from used books to jewelry, crafts and street-food snacks. A gigantic flag and, often, musicians make this a uniquely Mexican spot, perfect not only for shopping but also for photos.
