 Plaza de los FundadoresEsta plaza se llama así en honor a los fundadores de San Luis Potosí: Fray Diego de la Magdalena, Juan de Oñate y el Capitán Miguel Caldera, que fueron quienes
congregaron en este sitio, de manera oficial, a los primeros habitantes de esta ciudad. Esta plaza ha tenido varios cambios. Durante el periodo novohispano formaba parte del atrio del Templo Jesuita de la Compañia. En el porfiriato fue el bello jardín arbolado Arista. En 1966 se demolió una manzana para ampliar la
plaza e integrar visualmente los edificios que la conforman: el edificio central de la Universidad Autónoma de San Luis Potosí (antiguo Colegio de los Jesuitas), el Templo de la Compañia, la Capilla de Loreto, y el edificio Ipiña. Esto también permitió conformar una plaza para dar cabida a eventos cívicos, multitudinarios y conciertos. English:Founders SquareThis plaza is named in honor of the founders of San Luis Potosí: Brother Diego de la Magdalena, Juan de Oñate and Captain Miguel Caldera, who officially congregated the first inhabitants of this city on this site. The plaza



has had several names. During the New Spain period, it was part of the atrium of the Jesuit Temple. During the Porfirio Díaz era it was the beautiful Arista garden. In 1966 one square block was demolished to enlarge the plaza and visually integrate the buildings it encompasses: the central building of the Autonomous University of San Luis Potosí (formerly the Jesuit School), the Jesuit Temple, the Chapel of Loreto, and the Ipiña building. This also made it possible to form a plaza to make room for concerts, as well as civic and popular events.
