Suggest waiting until the restoration is complete. It was dusty and we couldn't enter the square. We did visit the cathedral and a couple of stores. We were early so most stores weren't open.

The architecture is pretty cool overall but the area is not as maintained as I would've hoped. Generally speaking it's relatively dirty and not well maintained... but the history is undeniable and I recommend seeing it at least once.

Extremely busy but a definite requirement in a visit to Mexico City. Lots of restaurants and shopping. Lineups move fast so make sure to see everything.

Centro Historico
The beating heart of the city lies within Centro
Histórico, the vast expanse of historical buildings
and monuments that are a must when exploring Mexico
