Plaza de la Constitución (Zócalo), Mexico City

Recommended
The huge Plaza de la Constitución stands in the historic centre of Mexico City. It is an impressive pedestrian square. Surrounded by buildings forming a vast architectural complex (Palacio Nacional, Catedral Metropolitana, the seat of the federal district), it is a place that is free of construction, where Mexicans can freely come and go, and is the setting for a wide variety of events. In the centre of the square stands the national flag, raised on a plinth, or socle, thus the square's name, Zócalo.
