This is the large plaza as seen at the beginning of the James Bond movie "Spectre". When we went, there was a exhibit / festival of different goods / crafts / foods from the different regions / states of Mexico.

A local told us that residents congregate at the Zocalo when they are happy or unhappy and want to share their feelings with others. Good thing it is such a huge space. If you are in the Historico Centro, do not miss the Zocalo.

There is no cost associated with going to the Zocolo. It is the "town square" or "plaza" of Mexico city. In the Zocolo you will find the national cathedral, the national palace, the national post office, and several shops and restaurants. If you do not...More

Site of the filming of the James Bond film, Specter, this is a must visit. It is also where the president does the annual Grito and where many festivals including the dia de la Muerta is celebrated. Surrounding it are many fantastic buildings and attractions.
