The main street is Avenida Juárez, on or near which are most of the souvenir shops, hotels, restaurants, clubs and bars. Two blocks west of Juárez on 16 de Septiembre, the Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe de El Paso del Norte mission was the first established in the region; the building was completed in 1668. The cathedral stands nearby. At the junction of Avenida Juárez and 16 de Septiembre is the Aduana, the former customs building, now the Museo Histórico (Tue-Sun 1000-1700) . In Parque Chamizal, just across the Córdova Bridge, are the Museo de Arte Prehispánico (Tue-Sun 1000-1700) with exhibits from each Mexican state, the Botanic Gardens and a memorial to Benito Juárez. Continuing south down Avenida Lincoln, you come to the Pronaf zone with the Museo de Arte e Historia (Tue-Sun 1000-1700) . The University Cultural Centre and the Fonart artisan centre, which acts as a Mexican ‘shop window’, are well worth a look for the uninitiated tourist. The Plaza Monumental de Toros (López Mateos y Triunfo de la República) holds bullfights between April and August, and charreadas (rodeos) are held at the Lienzo Charro (Av del Charro) .
