nice plaza

it's about a nice colonial era plaza surrounded by many nice old buildings , it's a good place for a walk or to have a seat in it.

I loved the city, but this plaza doesn't offer anything and is mostly empty. The cathedral is located here and is the only thing to do at this plaza.

Its a plaza, there is music and there is drunk people by night, the place is safe and its worth walking to it on a weekend and just enjoy the place with the locals. During the day is just another plaza.

Nice Colonial Plaza another example of why Zacatecas is a wonderful stop! As many colonial plazas are ... this is a wonderful place to walk around and imagine how this place was thousands of years ago!

To my mind, this is one of the more mundane principal plazas I've seen in Mexico. It's not even in front of the Cathedral, but instead is parked next to it, like an afterthought, below street level, with a shabby city hall running its length. It did offer some comfy seating, however, and was great for people-watching.

Great open place (in front of the cathedral)... In summer be prepared to hear a lot of music and chaos

This is where all the major gatherings occur, since its next to the Cathedral. While you walk around this historic city you will most likely pass through here. In the evening there was a motorcycle club gathering which you could here blocks away.
