Fodor's Review

This collection of red concrete tubs above Parque Benito Juárez is a public laundry where local women gather daily to wash clothes and chat as has been done for centuries. Some women claim to have more efficient washing facilities at home, but the lure of the spring-fed troughs and the chance to catch up on the news bring them to this shaded courtyard.
