Landmark Tourist Spot
Watch the world pass by as you sip coffee in the city’s main plaza, known as Zocalo. On the north side sits Casa Borda, the most important non-religious building in the city. The house is now used for teaching and other activities. The rest of the plaza is surrounded by restaurants, bars, and silver shops. Cobbled streets lead off from the plaza, with the street of Cuauhtemoc containing many of the area’s best restaurants and bars. Del Arco street heads towards the popular shopping and market area. This spot provides a good place to embrace the relaxed culture of the local Mexican culture. Using our custom trip planner, Taxco attractions like Zocalo can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • A relatively small but bustling center plaza. Stay for the evening and enjoy the locals as they come to play and socialize thru the night. Its a great way to experience all that Mexico really is!  more »
  • It is the typical socket where you can find all kinds of food and some souvenirs to buy, at night the way they lit it is very nice

  • And it is that day that we did not start the Sun. The place still vibrated so much activity (I don't know if because it was Sunday). Indeed, what must be a turn to the Centre and visit what surrounds him. It is a beautiful and unforgettable place!

  • Wonderful place to visit!! A must go town!! Many restaurants bars and cafes to choose from, during the day you can visit the silver and jewelry shops and be amazed with the designs and the prices!! The trip is just two and a half hours from Mexico City.
  • A place to look back in time and try to figure it out how Mexico turned into what it's now. Lovely and delicious Mexican food available around this square.
  • This is a very nice downtown in the city of Taxco. When you visit this city, don't forget to buy Silver in the market.
  • Nice Mexican pueblito atmosphere.Trees decorated with pinhata stars and little aztec figurines.
  • Beautiful! The most beautiful city in mexico ive seen.
