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.
