Zocalo, Taxco

(4.6/5 based on 420+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • There is much variety in the small kiosk, they sell lots of traditional food such as ice cream, pork rinds, churros, corn, etc. A typical Mexican place to enjoy sitting in the banquitas.

  • Though the socket is very small, the appeal is everything is to your around, from the Cathedral, the business of silverware and a good variety of restaurants.

  • Nice Mexican pueblito atmosphere.Trees decorated with pinhata stars and little aztec figurines.
  • Beautiful! The most beautiful city in mexico ive seen.
  • Great Place to taken most of what Taxco has to offer. Silver jeweler all around as well as Hotels, Restaurants, Santa Prisca Church and it is only a short walk to the Market
  • Small, but cute little plaza surrounded by old world buildings and a beautiful cathedral. There are a number of shops (mostly silver jewelry) and restaurants surrounding the Zocalo. The area is small and so the vehicles that use the round-about, hurt it's charm. Some street vendors, but many more "promoters" trying to entice you to buy jewelry or eat in restaurants they work for.
  • Great place!!!
