Plaza de la Constitución Mexico City


Zocalo Square

The heart of Mexico City, the Zocalo is the world’s second largest public square at a massive 57,600 square metres.

A gathering place since Aztec times, this is where Mexicans come to celebrate and protest. The Zocalo is bordered by the baroque Catedral Metropolitana, the Aztec ruins of Templo Mayor, the 20th-century Museo Nacional de Arte, and the Palacio Nacional, which has housed Mexico’s rulers since the Aztecs.

For a spot of culture, history and architecture all in one, a visit to the Zocalo is well worth it.
