Plaza de Armas, Queretaro City
(4.7/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
Head to the heart of Queretaro's historic center at Plaza de Armas, a bustling town square. Surrounded by 18th century architecture, the square represents a good point from which to view the city's colonial manors and mansions. A photographer's eye will be drawn to the open aspect of the square, in contrast to the often cramped streets around the historic center. Choose from a number of atmospheric restaurants, bars, and cafes, which line the square and offer alfresco wining and dining. The square's central fountain is topped by a statue of Juan Antonio de Urrutia y Arana, the nobleman and benefactor who funded so much of the city's development. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Queretaro City holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Plaza de Armas and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Central square of the historic district, is there always something happening. At any time of the year, we meet families, markets or other animations. On the other side, ready for the kiosk, it is music and dance.
