Delightful Space to Relax

Like most Mexican towns, Puebla has a lovely town square, where you can stroll and relax. Worth some of your visiting time.

The walk around the main plaza is really nice . There's a lot of restaurants, a Dalí rain, a sculpture, and the basilica . The people are nice and you can always find something to do and to shop. The only thing is, there's a lot of street vendors that clash with the beautiful scenery. However is a must even... More

Pueblas Main Square is a charming well kept park and public space. Full of life and color it is good place to sit and watch people passing by and take the temperature of a beautiful Mexican town.

From the 350+ year old Puebla Cathedral to the nearby Palacio Municipal de Puebla (city hall building) - all of which surrounds a beautiful, tree-covered central park - I would like to proclaim that Puebla's Zocalo is the best city square in all of Mexico! Even if you prefer El Zocalo in Mexico City (and rightfully so, considering their own... More

I found the Zocalo de Puebla to be one of the most beautiful Zocalos in all of Mexico. Surrounded by beautiful buildings and next to the stunning Puebla Cathedral, it is a lovely place to visit at any time of day or night. I visited the Zocalo every day of my trip to Puebla. You can easily catch a tour... More

This large park in the center of the historical district is a must see, or should I say, a must enjoy. When you're ready to stop for a breather from all the walking, or just want to people watch on a bench in the shade of large trees, the Zocalo has it all. A classic large fountain, restaurants that ring... More

Beautiful zocolo, but surprisingly small considering the size of the city. Great people watching. The restaurants around it are very touristy, although offering local dishes. Enjoy the park for what it is, but venture a few blocks away for better food. Don't miss the Cathedral on the corner. ( you can't miss it)! The entire zocolo is surrounded by beautiful... More
