  • 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.

  • 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
  • A good place to visit but should not be a priority if you have limited time. Entrance is free of charge and there is plenty of information available. You can see that digging for artifacts is still ongoing. The highlight for me was the 'skeleton lovers'.

Where to stay in Mexico City

Head straight to the trendy neighborhoods of Roma or La Condesa if you're looking for an artsy atmosphere--you can find design-conscious hostels and boutique hotels nestled among the many bars, restaurants, cafes, and galleries. For easy access to the city's most beautiful architecture, you can't beat staying in the historical center, although the neighborhood's UNESCO-listing means you'll only find smaller, old-fashioned options there. You can also indulge in a few luxury nights in the fancy Polanco district, or look for a more budget-friendly option in the popular Zona Rosa.
