  • I had the opportunity and meet her at night. I thought it was a very nice and quiet place with interesting architecture around. What I didn't like was that it was a place "lifeless"...

  • A decent but average central plaza by the normal standards in Mexico. Not too many shops or restaurants ... mostly just the city and state government buildings and nothing more. Not lively at all.  more »
  • A place that you can't miss when you come to Monterrey touring the square full of shops where you can buy crafts, take a coffee or eat an ice cream. It is not a conventional as a colonial town square, but you can spend an afternoon with the family.
