For Europeans it might be a surprise to see all these very beautiful buildings from after 1700 here. Most of them (us) only get to see some Maya ruins somewhere in Yucatan or elsewhere. The historic centre of CDMX or DF, as one refers to...More

The park itself is small with various walkways running through it. It has a band stand and a few fountains... Very popular with skateboarders !!! It’s free and worth 45 minutes of your time.

We loved taking in all the sights. The huge square was surrounded by a range of really impressive buildings. The side streets all made great viewing and exploring and really not too crowded in the mornings.

Historical centre is pretty cool, a very traditional area of Mexico and lots of stalls selling stuff around. Looks great when weather is warm etc

It is wonderful! As I said in another review, the historic center is an attack on the senses: too many colors, peoples, tastes, smells, sounds etc. But nothing is like the street Francisco Madero. Try it at least once during your stay on Mexico City....More

Use your google maps app to navigate and get information about many of the buildings, museums and parks in the Historical Center. Be aware of traveling shoe shiners. Keep walking even if they start talking to you.
