A lovely park setting by the Zócalo so a great place to walk and sightsee. Walk the blocks around the Cathedral, Government buildings and see the murals and enjoy the day

This is just a great place to take a walk and take some nice pictures in a Historic area. Current construction is a bit distracting but it is still very nice.

Is nice to see all the nice metal-sculptures with a mini-biography of historic characters. Is surrounded by the beautiful church and buildings of the government. Here is also the main tour bus stop for tourist.

Indeed many sculptures of illustrious MEN. Where do you go to see the women. It is the hop-on, hop-off buses.
