Go inside this on the right hand side -look to the far back and notice how un-level this space is. Once you do, good luck walking around, its a very weird sensation.

Located in the Zocalo it is central to many sites that you will want to see. Good for people watching and five minutes from the Templo Mayor

The Cathedral is impressive and it is located in the heart of CDMX downtown. Built by the Spanish, it is a representation of an era of doctrine and suppression. This is a must while visiting the city.

We like to visit churches, mostly for the architecture, religious art, and occasionally for the music. While the cathedral is large on the outside, it is dark and broken up into various chapels inside. The architecture and art is not particularly inspiring. What did inspire...More

Beautiful building, lots of history, details to see everywhere, it's a shame to see how many things were so heavily damaged after last year's earthquake but it has taken away the charm
