See many of the most famous historic sites in Mexico City, all within one neighborhood.


El Zocalo
Mexico City’s main square, El Zocalo is located in Centro Historico (Mexico City’s historic center). The square is surrounded by historic buildings, national landmarks and impressive architecture.


Mexico City Metropolitan Cathedral
The Mexico City Metropolitan Cathedral is the largest cathedral in the Americas, as well as one of the most historic. Check out the architecture, artwork, religious relics and crypts. Definitely don’t miss a look at the pendulum that hangs in the middle of the cathedral that shows how the architecture shifted as the city itself shifts on its ancient lakebed foundation.


Bellas Artes
One of Mexico City’s most famous landmarks, Bellas Artes is a long-standing venue for all things artistic. You can explore the interior offerings for just a few dollars, or, do what most visitors do and just snap some photos from the exterior.


El Templo Mayor
Right off El Zocalo and adjacent to the Mexico City Metropolitan Cathedral, El Templo Mayor, or the Great Temple, is an archaeological site first discovered in the 1970s. The current multiple dig sites highlight ancient Aztec ruins that date back to the 1300s.


The National Palace
Also located just off El Zocalo, the National Palace is a popular spot to visit to learn more about Mexico’s history. Check out the famed murals and beautiful architecture, but also just enjoy a walk around the impeccably arranged gardens, inhabited by more than a few resident cats.
