Plaza de la Constitución
Plaza de la Constitución is infinitely better known as the zócalo and is undoubtedly Mexico City’s most famous and most frequented plaza. Located smack bang in the middle of the historic centre, it’s bordered on all sides by historically fascinating buildings. Check out the Palacio Nacional, the Metropolitan Cathedral or even the Old Portal de Mercederes. It’s biggest annual event is Independence Day, when the president gives the cry of independence from the palace balcony, but year round you can find events and festivals taking place on the open expanse of this plaza.
