This, like many other plazas in Mexico is always not only a geographical centre of the historic town, but also a beehive of activity.At night, there are frequent performances, at times with unbearable noise in case you chose (as I did) one of the hotels...More

The exception is the magnificent Degollado building on one side of the plaza. The plaza itself has a gorgeous fountain and plenty of activity so one can people watch for hours if one can find a place to sit down.

Street performers, stunning fountains, artistic metal bench art and some great people watching are just a few reason to visit.

The Plaza de Armas is right next to the Catedral. This is the place where the Spanish fought the indigenous. There is a wrought iron gazebo. There is greenery and park benches but not a lot of shade. Lots of pigeons!
