Macroplaza is a true, local landmak of Monterrey! Emblematic, spacious - very specific and important part of downtown Monterrey. However, there are some abandoned areas and some of them are badly damaged. The walk along the plaza is itself very pleasant though, remember to wear some comfortable shoes!

Macroplaza is free and takes you right in to the Centro de Monterey. It has nice monuments. Nice green space. Great for a day of some inexpensive shopping while in Monterey. Great and fresh street food in the area. The food is very affordable and delicious!!!

Don't miss strolling along the vast Gran Plaza (Macroplaza) in Monterrey. Fine museums, historic and modern architecture, great place to people-watch and take photos. Minutes from metro stations, shopping, restaurants.

At Macro plaza are 4 museums close each other maybe 3 or 4 blocks. So that could be a good place to visit but for people like the culture. Macro plaza it is just very close to downtown where there many stores.

It is really a beautiful part of Monterrey, the view of el cerro de la silla and kids running around having fun are so great. I really enjoyed the underground shops and the natural sounds of monterrey around me and it is surrounded with shops as well. Makes for a great visit but it can be really hot, take water... More

The place is big. We took the boat tour and it lasted one hour. Magnificent gardens, very well taken care of. The place is lovely although commenting with my wife, it lacks the wow factor for some unknown reason. Definitely worth visiting.

Several blocks long, walking trails and parks, very nice scene of strolling families. Great street venders selling crafts and food, and not at all aggressive. Museums, hotels, gov't buildings surround it with stupendous architecture and sculptures. Very beautiful and safe.
