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.

You can visit churches around the macroplaza, as well as museums, and also take a boat to Fundidora. It is recommended to visit Monterrey's centre.

Despite the traffic speeding by, the Macroplaza is a quiet spot with benches full of señores reading books in the morning. Enjoy the people watching and visit the Cathedral across the street.

This is a standard city center. The statues were nice. And the area is generally relaxing and enjoyable. I really liked the mermen fountain and the church to the left of the government palace.

As its name indicates, is a large square. In fact, one of the largest plazas in the world. Definitely its size is impressive since it covers 40 hectares of the City of Monterrey. Walking around the place is very pleasant, you find sculptures, fountains, monuments,...More

This is a very large public square with gardens, picnic areas, street vendors, libraries and public shows. Very good way to spend an afternoon.
