The place was really pretty, I found it a bit sad that there were so many children, women and young men selling all kinds of stuff and you feel a bit harassed by them. But the view of the cathedral is stunning, as well as the park itself

Pretty good area to meet friends and get an ice cream or a coffee or a full on meal. Tons of shops in the square as well as vendors all over the place. Some fountains for the kiddos to play in on hot days.

The Zocalo in Puebla is the centrum from the City. Here you'll find the Catedral and a lot of shops and restaurants. In the middle there is a little park where you can also rest.

The Zocolo in Puebla is a people-watching paradise! It is a hive of activity and photo ops. The day I was there (Sun 24th July) el Combate de Flores was being celebrated: a parade of vintage cars, bicycles and tricycles where passengers threw flowers at females in the cheering crowds to commemorate the 485th anniversary of the foundation of Puebla...

The atmosphere in the Zocalo was lively! It was very clean and there were not sellers on each street corner. Tourist buses leave from el Zocalo to go sight seeing. Also a person can find a number of restaurants around this plaza. One can sit and watch people all day long and never get bored.

Zocalo is where all the life is. Seems like everyone from the town and outside hang around here. Extremely lively with food, music and colors.

I loved this place, lots of places to sit and people watch, there is history everywhere, architecture abounds and lots of street vendors and the park is so wonderful and even though is it alive with people, very peaceful. The trees are beautiful as is the fountain and artwork. Loved Puebla!
