You can visit churches around the macroplaza, as well as museums, and also take a boat to Fundidora. It is recommended to visit Monterrey's centre.

Despite the traffic speeding by, the Macroplaza is a quiet spot with benches full of señores reading books in the morning. Enjoy the people watching and visit the Cathedral across the street.

This Is surely one of the most popular weekend hangouts for local folk that like to walk around, check out cheapy trinket stands ... or come celebrate a local soccer clubs' championship! Beyond that, not much to see but a relative 'local classic'.
