This is the place where you find the main cathedral in the city along with the archeological remains of the pyramids from the pre-Spaniard. It is unique with the colonial buildings and seeing how they actually sink and get damaged while sinking. There are plenty of things to see besides from the cathedral and the pyramid remains such as the presidential palace. It is very lively and leads to the pedestrian shopping street with plenty of shops, cafes and restaurants.
A place to see in Mexico city! Not a very good visibility the day we went as there were a lot of trucks... In preparation for a flower festival. We hired one of the bicycle taxi for a tour of the different landmarks of the city and we ended up paying the double of the price agreed as at the end, out of nowhere, he announced us the price was per person and not for the vehicle. Be careful!!
huge square but blocked off. surrounded by stunning cathedral and government buildings. lots of shops and restaurants around the area. very touristy but worth the visit. free wifi near the square, very considering.
The best tacos I've had in Mexico City and at the best price it's no wonder the line to order goes down the street. i think they have 3 different kinds. i got a mix and was happy. Probably the potato taco was my favorite.nThe dining area is packed but you can get a stool to sit on if you are patient. it's worth the trouble to experience this wonderful place. I noticed that almost everyone eating seems to be a local.
A central place from which you can reach anywhere. Many cafes and restaurants, and jewelry stores, you can find anything there. In the summer the place is noisy and crowded. But at this time of the year, which is a bit cool and rainy, there are fewer people than usual.nThere is a metro nearby that you can take and get anywhere else in the city.On one side of the street there is a huge market worth visiting :)
lots to do , lots to see , LOTS TO EAT, MANY TO CHOOSE FROM. this place is amazing. super busy area lots of people, cars, bicycles along with lots of law enforcement. seeing tourism police on almost every corner of the streets is assuring there is nothing to worry about. still stay alert but relax and enjoy all the things you can indulge in .
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.
A fascinating place, with such history - can't recommend visiting highly enough - the a subway station called Zocalo that takes you right here - so much easier that by road transport, as the Police shut the roads randomly, making access virtually impossible...
Finally got a chance to visit the Zocalo in person. I have heard so many great things about it and now I saw it with my own eyes.nnUnfortunately, they do remove the giant flag that is a historic symbol of this place so I was not able to see if but the architecture of all the buildings was just breathtaking.
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.
Most amazing place on earth!nFriendly and hard-working people!nAmazing food!nRichest historic events!nInnovative points of view where struggles are turned into opportunities :)
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!!!
The main square in the center of Mexico City. This plaza has been using for traditional ceremonies since the Aztec era. It was added to the UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987. This plaza is one of the most famous squares around the world. The Most Famous Squares Around the World.
