El Mercado Hidalgo

—Un Museo Llamado Guanajuato / A Museum Called Guanajuato —

No existe en México otro mercado como este. En su tiempo fue un alarde de tecnología, un lujo y un nuevo símbolo de la suntuosa capital minera. El proyecto estuvo en manos del ingeniero-arquitecto Ernesto Brunel, y el proyecto de la portada al arquitecto Antonio Rivas Mercado. El Mercado Hidalgo - construido donde estuviera la antigua plaza de toros de Gaviria - , fue inaugurado el 16 de Septiembre de 1910, como parte de las fiestas del Centenario de la Independencia y fue puesto en operación en julio de 1911. El edificio, dividido en dos plantas, tiene una longitud de 70 metros por 35 de fondo. Existen tres accesos, incluyendo el enorme portón de cantera de la puerta principal; 34 ventanales brindan la luz natural que ilumina la nave metálica. La bóveda está coronada por una torre con un reloj de cuatro carátulas con su cúpula. Su estructura de fierro (manufactura expresamente para este mercado por una fundición mexicana) es una de las más importantes de su naturaleza que aún se conserva en el país de la época porfirista.
