  • It's called Plaza of the three cultures because there are remains of pre-Hispanic ruins of the Tlatelolca people, the Church of Santiago Apostle which is colonial and reminds the Spanish culture, and the culture of the modern Mexico with Tlatelolco Tower as main building that marks the different times. You can enter for free every day from 8 to 18 hours.

  • Not allowed entering the environment, only he could see from the Museum. But nice place steeped in history

  • Three cultures because there are remains of prehistoric settlements, a colonial and temple at the time who was the icon of modern architecture and the headquarters of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Plaza sadly remembered for the events of October 1968.

  • 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'.
  • felt a lil bit spooky knowing the historic of this building/area. great young heroes at that time.
  • It is well known for being the place where students were killed at a massive massacre called by the government, a few germans asked me if there was a symbol or anything representing that, there is a museum explaining all next to that plaza!
  • very cool site showing 3 mexican eras. the pre-columbian, the conquest, and the modern era. definitely travel with a guide who will explain the history behind what you'll see.
  • Beautiful architecture and an historically important place.

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.
