Marisol (Spanish pronunciation: [maɾiˈsol]) is a Mexican telenovela produced by Juan Osorio for Televisa in 1996.[1] Telenovela is a remake of the 1977 Mexican telenovela Marcha nupcial. Famous and beloved Enrique Álvarez Félix died after he finished his work in Marisol.[2][3]

Erika Buenfil and Eduardo Santamarina starred as protagonists, while Claudia Islas,[4] Enrique Álvarez Félix, Aarón Hernán, Irma Lozano, Germán Robles, Laura Flores, Emma Laura, Renée Varsi, Sergio Basañez and Pilar Montenegro starred as antagonists.


Marisol has a pain-ridden life. She has a disfiguring scar on her face from a piece of a broken mirror she had fallen on when she was a little girl. Her mother is dying and Marisol must sell paper flowers to make money in order to support herself and her mother.

Sofia, Marisol's mother, is carrying a heavy secret and she realizes she must tell Marisol the truth before she dies and leaves her alone (especially with Marisol's sleazy boyfriend Mario).

Unfortunately, Sofia dies without revealing that Marisol is really the granddaughter of Don Alonso Garcés del Valle, the patriarch of a very rich family, which includes the handsome and amiable painter, José Andrés, also one of Alonso's grandchildren, or is he?.

To complicate matters, José Andrés and Marisol fall in love with each other (even though they are engaged to other people), both completely in the dark about their true identities.
