Plaza de Armas is my favorite place in Queretaro to visit. I love the plaza to sit and enjoy watching the people having a wonderful time. I feel like this park is the "heart" of Queretaro.

Awesome place to just hang out. Go there and buy some cute souveniers and do some site seeing. I'd opt for a leyends and myths tour as well
