In the early twentieth century, Tijuana was a small town with just 245 inhabitants. The only residential area was the downtown and the strip was Olvera Street (today called Avenida Revolucion), in which there were some businesses and shops for the service of tourism and since then has been a meeting point for all tourists for its variety of handicrafts, restaurants and nightlife.

The donkey - zebra and colorful coachs.

The donkey - Zebra is a symbol of Tijuana and cultural heritage of Baja California, since the early 1900s the photo with the sarape, the Mexican hat and the donkey was a must when visiting the city which at that time represented the Mexico of Pancho Villa and Emiliano Zapata; the problem with the souvenir was that often the image of the animal was lost in the black and white image, until someone came up with "paint" the donkey stripes to appear in the photo nicely.

 

Jai alai

The historic building was built in 1925 with Moorish style where jai alai (a Spanish sport) was played, it was closed in the nineties and is now known as the Forum, a space where concerts are held, boxing matches and different shows.

 

Caesar's Restaurant

It is the place where Caesar salad was created. In the early 20's brothers Caesar and Alex Cardini founded this restaurant and the story says that a 4th of July 4 a group of airmen from San Diego came to visit the place, but upon arrival, the restaurant was over almost everything for cooking, so they asked to prepare them "the same that the chef Livio Santini was eating", which was a simple salad made with romaine lettuce with a garnish that her grandmother used to make for her family in Italy ... thus was born this dish which is now known worldwide.
