Zocalo, Puebla
(4.8/5 based on 1,400+ reviews on the web)
Roam Puebla's main square, Zocalo, a World Heritage Site. Used as a gathering point as early as the 16th century, the square is renowned for its quaint colonial architecture. A variety of stores and restaurants await you, sprinkled between the ornate Spanish colonial buildings. Admire the basilica dominating the square with two of the tallest church towers in Mexico, and enjoy the shimmering lights the cathedral is decorated with at night. Relax at a cafe or on a bench in the thick shade of trees, people watch, and soak in the scenic square view. Arrange to visit Zocalo and other attractions in Puebla using our Puebla vacation route planner.
