Trip Planner: Mexico / Central Mexico and Gulf Coast / Mexico City / Historic Center (Centro Historico)
Tread the paths of the many historic streets found at Historic Center (Centro Historico), the central neighbourhood in Mexico City and a hotspot for historic architectural beauty. Just over 9 sq-km (3.4 sq-mi) of 668 densely populated blocks host an impressive 1,550 buildings that have been certified historically significant.

Many of the most important buildings and architecture, dating back to the 16th century, are found around this square, including the Metropolitan Cathedral, The National Palace and the “Templo Mayor”.
