Around Mexico City Sights

Plaza de Armas

  • Plaza/Square/Piazza

Fodor's Review

The city's most traditional square is marked by a hefty, volcanic-stone statue of revolutionary hero José María Morelos and a couple of little fountains. On weekdays the square fills with vendors from neighboring villages. On weekends it is crowded with balloon sellers, amateur painters, and stalls for crafts, jewelry, and knickknacks. To the north of the square is leafy Jardín Juárez (Juárez Garden), which hosts Sunday concerts at its bandstand. The Tren Turístico,

a wooden trolleybus that's a great way to sightsee, departs from the plaza's southeast corner, opposite the Palacio de Cortés.
