  • Worth a visit if you are nearby. This is a small square surrounded by old buildings and a church. There are a few street sellers around but not much more activity.  more »
  • A square full of activities, shops, performers, etc. An experience in itself. Besides the bewutiful setting with the Inglesia of Santo Domingo in the background.  more »
  • It is a square surrounded by first-rate historical and artistic buildings: the temples of Santo Domingo, the Palace of the Inquisition, the home of the first Surgeon, the old customs house and the evangelists portal. The cherry on the cake, a nineteenth-century sculpture of our heroine Doña Josefa Ortiz de Domínguez.

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.
