Following the Mexican War of Independence, the area became a major manufacturing and business hub. Today, Monterrey’s economy is fuelled by industry, business and international corporations.

Located in the heart of the city, Macroplaza is a cultural and administrative point, surrounded by buildings, green areas and monuments. The Macroplaza joins onto Fundidora Park where the Santa Lucia river walk parallels the canal, which was constructed in 2007. Barrio Antiguo is the old area of the city and offers a multitude of cafes, bars, restaurants, festivals and art galleries.
