It’s a lovely, lively and even peaceful place to begin your visit to Puebla’s historic center. Cathedral, restaurants, bars and lots of shopping opportunities in the area.

There are multiple stores, restaurants and historic buildings around El Zocalo. Enjoy the experience of having a coffee, ice cream or a meal while enjoying watching the crowd go by.

Zócalo Is not that impressive. Is like any other Zócalo from any other Mexican estate. Good thing is that there are a lot of restaurants over there and is necessary that you try the Chile en Hogada.
