“People Watching”
Reviewed July 30, 2012

This is a very small plaza surrounded by historic buildings, coffee shops and restaurants. We like having comida at one of the outdoor restaurants with live music and just watching the people which always include salespeople, college students, families and businesspeople as well as the occasional protest or concert. The park has been undergoing some restoration so views have been limited but should now be finished.

“Plaza Independencia”
Reviewed June 30, 2012

This is a beautiful plaza surrounded by plenty of stores and restaurants. In rain though you need to take cover in the surrounding buildings.

“A great place to eat, meet and relax”
Reviewed June 1, 2012

Many people out at all hours with restaurant and bar choices up the kazoo. Nice to take in the local color and meet with friends or clients. One of the many nice squares in Queretaro.

“Great vibe, nice spot to relax and people watch”
Reviewed May 23, 2012

Plaza de Armas, along with the numerous other plazas in Queretaro, is a nice colonial square lined with shops, restaurants with outdoor seating, fountains, and historic buildings. The historic centro of Queretaro is a great place to walk around leisurely, looking at colonial buildings and soaking in the great atmosphere and terrific climate. Very enjoyable way to spend an afternoon or evening. You'll feel totally safe here.
