A very nice place to walk and enjoy the grand architectures and buildings. During the daytime it is a safe place to be around - maybe in the evenings too (no experience). Visit the cathedral - which have different parts and the nearby Templo de Mayo.

The park is incredibly serene, the fountains, monuments, and statutes are breathtaking, and it is beyond worthwhile to spend a day here, restoring your soul. Sundays are very lively, for better or worse.

The park is a refreshing site amongst all the buildings of Mexico City. Though it is a hot spot for protesters.

Not sure what's up with the review saying this isn't as nice as Mexico City...this IS Mexico City? I think he meant to review the Centro Historico in Guadalajara (not even in the same state..). Anyways, this is a very beautiful historic center, it reminded me a lot of Madrid, actually. We spent hours just walking around. There are lots... More

Very nice place with a lot of history. Some of the best restaurants in Mexico City are located here and from time to time you may experience great expositions.

Your enjoyment of the Centro Historico is only limited to how much time you have available. Where do I start? Museums, the zocalo, innumerable gorgeous old churches, shopping and dining.
