Great area to walk around, lots of interesting buildings and churches. Nice to see a centre where locals are enjoying their city not just tourists.

Centro Historico is the central neighborhood in Mexico City. It is focused on Zocalo which is the largest plaza in Latin America. It can hold up to nearly 100,000 people. Unfortunately many buildings need renovation. So big country and city should more take care of its heart.

So much to do however be sure to rest at times at the many d’lish restaurants like El Cardinal, Azul, El Templo, Las Sirenas to name a few. We also enjoyed the Design Museum and coffee on the terrace at Palacio de la Bella Artes.

I have loved walking around. They say it can be dangerous, but if you stay in the main central area there is a lot of police.

We walked this area on a gorgeous January afternoon. Plenty to see and the central Plaza is as big as I have seen on any continent. There are markets galore - food, souvenirs, etc. Excavated native buildings are central to the area and leave you...More

Beautifully designed and well maintained. You can either walk around or better yet, drive by. Traffic is heavy enough that you can read the monument from the road.
