Marisol (Spanish pronunciation: [maɾiˈsol]) is a 1996 Mexican telenovela, starring Erika Buenfil and Eduardo Santamarina with the antagonic role of the star actress Claudia Islas.[2] It was produced by Televisa. This telenovela contained 145 episodes and is a remake of Marcha nupcial.

Famous and beloved Enrique Álvarez Félix died after he finished his work in Marisol.[3][4]


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.
