Description

If you visit Mexico City, you really shouldn't miss seeing the Zócalo and surrounding area. It's a giant plaza with the Metropolitan Cathedral standing tall above it. This has long been a sacred place in Mexico City as it was built upon the site of the Aztec Templo Mayor.

I visited the Zocalo during the exposition of the Sistine Chapel. The main plaza looks incredible. It is a very well done experience. I definitely recommend going. The waiting line was like 20 minutes. If you take the time to read and admire all the art that takes part into this incredible audiovisual experience it will take you a little bit more than one hour. Photos and videos inside the Sistine Chapel Replica are strictly forbidden. If you don't want someone from security or the staff checking your photo gallery do not even have your cellphone or cameras in your hands. They are very serious about it.

Although the area is historic and beautiful. There are many pickpocket thieves active there. During my very short visit, I met more than 5 people that their wallet or phone got stolen. There is presence of the police but they seem to do nothing to solve the problem. Not sure how they expect tourists to come again after such an experience. If you ever end up there, be sure to watch your belongings carefully.

Cool place with tons of space. At night time it looks beautiful because the building lights change color. Itu2019s probably best to come during the day if you want to see the architecture.

A must see destination in Mexico City's Historic District. Everything in the area is historic and descriptive of Mexico's cultural heritage from the time of the Aztecs to current time. Plenty of cops. You can only walk here, apparently. Cars are somewhere else, except for underground subway stop.nnI was here first on daytime after walking a few blocks from my hotel and was looking for the subway stop, which is named Zocalo, too. It afforded me grand views of the Cathedral, which is huge, plus other prominent buildings I could not recall the names now but they all looked big, old, and important. I wonder why there are no trees or any vegetation or foliage in the very wide open space. But you can seat if you want.nnI am grateful for the help given me by the subway people so I could take my ride in their system and go to other important destinations in Mexico City.

I love this place, been here is like going back in time. The buildings are incredible, full of history. If you visit this place on Sunday, you may be able to enjoy the Aztec dancers. Showing some of their beautiful penachos, and traditions. Visit you won't regret it!!!
