Madero one year after having visited Mazatlan in 1913.
The Municipal Market of Mazatlan “Pino Suarez” was designed and built by Mr. Alejandro Loubet, constructed in iron and steel and based on the Art Nouveau style, using the same techniques that were used seven years before in the construction of the Eiffel Tower. This new building work marked the history of Mazatlan placing it as the center of trade and industry more progressive of the country.
Over time, the Pino Suarez Market has undergone major changes that have been placed as a historic bridge between the past and present. Today it remains one of the main centers of trade in Mazatlan and one of the most visited by tourists thanks to its splendid location in the heart of the city.
