Plaza de Armas, Queretaro City

(4.7/5 based on 700+ 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.

  • Querétaro has a dream, which you can meet walking or also use tourist transport, which facilitates to thoroughly know the main tourist attractions. Listen to legends, admire colonial architecture, eat in the restaurants of the Plaza, buy handicrafts and primarily interact with the Queretaro, are the big delights one can enjoy in the Plaza de Armas.
