  • Now very square that is little appreciated, although it deserves for the story it tells: that of the first local populations, the arrival of Spanish rule indicated by the Church and ended with the modern skyscraper that speaks of modern times. Large and impressive.

  • Must-see historic place confluence of pre-Hispanic culture that shows the ruins in very good state of conservation, the temple where was baptized Juan Diego and modern square where killed students who were protesting against Government measures in the year 1968. We went with a guide who gave us a very good explanation.

  • A beautiful place! Full of history Very well conserved The church is beauty and peacefull Recommended place ti go with a local guide ti take advabtsge of the history around this square.
  • This area needs to be better known to the world. What happened on Oct 2nd 1968 is not mentioned at all unless your guide tells you about it. Yes, there are thousands of years of history here, yet it's all very understated.
  • It's a bit hard to rate. We went to see memorial for those killed in 1968 by government. There is a large archeological site and a branch of university with exhibit on 1968 around the world. Unfortunately we were too late to spend time at other two.
  • Impressive view with lots of history. This place definitely needs to be visited, for what has happened and the students who need to be remembered.
  • If you know the history of this place, you will feel so overwhelmed and depressing to be there.😢 #niperdononiolvido
