Another must see, if you're in centro. Have lunch, or come for photos. You can find small stalls around to shop. However in summer, there is not much shade.

You can see different attractions and historic landmarks while taking a walk. Just be sure to take an umbrella for those sunny days. You can also find nearby places to eat.

This is the centre of Monterrey and a great place to stroll day or evening. The area around the municipal palace is very interesting with nice historic buildings and museums.

A decent but average central plaza by the normal standards in Mexico. Not too many shops or restaurants ... mostly just the city and state government buildings and nothing more. Not lively at all.
