How to get

Plaza de la Constitución s/n, Col. Centro. 06000, Historic Center

in detail

The Zocalo or Plaza de la Constitución is located in the heart of the Historic Center, in the first sector of the city. This square was the center of Tenochtitlan before the arrival of the Spanish conquerors and still remains the political and religious center, centuries after.

Today it is the big hub of the city and an events venue. The Zocalo is surrounded by the Metropolitan Cathedral of Mexico City, the National Palace, the Historic City Hall and the Government Building. In the center, the huge flag enhances national sentiment. Mexican Independence is remembered here every September 15th.

It regularly holds events and exhibits, some aimed at children, because in Mexico City children have a very special place.
