Zócalo was once the main centre of the Aztec capital Tenochtitlan and now this main plaza is the beating heart of Mexico's capital. Within a few meters you will discover pre-Hispanic ruins and majestic colonial buildings. In the surrounding streets you will encounter a cross section of Mexico City's population: business executives, workers, and fashioniasta, as well as vendors, buskers and Aztec dancers. The tourists and locals alike wander these streets where Mexico's past and present intersect. The varieties of architectural and artistic styles combine to create a fascinating testament to the passage of time. The cathedral is also replete with colonial religious art and beautiful gilded altarpieces. One can head to the terrace bar at the Grand Hotel Ciudad de Mexico, located across the street from the southwest corner of the Zócalo, for a refreshment and a spectacular view of the square.
