If you’re looking for bargains, this is the place to go because they sell all kinds of merchandise specially gold and silver, this is the place with the Mexicans go when they don’t have money and they dump their valuables for a couple of dollars, you can see around and Find out what has expired And buy it for a cheaper price.

they sell the jewerly the same way the they pawn it, the place has many rooms that you can explore, you can easily see the price tag on each of them without asking the attendant to show it to you, they usually have a color per day that has a discount so look for the board that has it, the gold price is good and they have some individual pieces at cheap prices, the best is that the bracelets are sturdy gold not like the ones that they sell in the US, you can use your credit card, they will ask you for a copy of your passport, you can get it right outside for .10 cent no surprise charges after

They are remodeling the original stores on the street level, they are all closed and inaccessible. You need to go inside and go to floor 2 to see the few stores they have open now. Not really worth visiting until they reopen the original stores.

Definitely worth a visit! located just off 5 de Mayo next to the cathedral, this building has as much history as some of the other sights around the square. And an English speaking guide took us through the building as a free service even refusing a tip. (unheard of in Mexico).

Great stained glass ceilings and architecture make this the classiest pawn shop in the world. Just walk down the corridor and pop in the rooms.
