Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Plaza de las Estrellas is a shopping center located in Mexico City. It was built in 1982. It is best known as the site of the Paseo de las Luminarias, the Mexican equivalent of the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Gloria Funtanet, one of the Plaza's developers, created the Paseo to honor Mexicans and Latin-Americans in showbusiness, most notably the motion picture, television, theatrical, and recording industries, of which Mexico City is the center in Latin America. Since the Paseo's dedication, which coincided with the Plaza's opening, over 1,000 entertainers, mostly from Mexico, have been inducted. The inductees are honored with a star and their handprints embedded on square tiles. The Paseo is located in the upper level of the shopping center, and doubles as the main walkway to and from the stores located on that level.

While the Paseo has become the Plaza's main attraction, it's easy to forget that there are other attractions at the Plaza. A 14-screen CineMex movie theater is located in the upper level, and both levels contain a total of 200 stores, numerous restaurants, some of which are in the Plaza Gourmet food court, three banks, several amusement facilities, a hotel (El Hotel del Prado) and three nearby office buildings.

Notable inductees on the Paseo de las Luminarias

Among the famous entertainers whose handprints and stars have been imbedded into the Paseo are Raul Velasco, Maria Elena Velasco, Maria Felix, Celia Cruz, Angelica Maria and her daughter Angelica Vale, Aida Pierce, Alejandro Fernandez, Alejandra Guzmán, Lupita D'Alessio, Thalía, Maribel Guardia, Placido Domingo, Vicente Fernández, Pepe Aguilar, Jorge Ortiz de Pinedo, Carla Estrada, and many other famous stars.
