    Walking Tour of The Zocalo, Mexico's Historic Center

    IWC partners with Understand Mexico to bring you a fun walking tour.

    Surrounding the Zocalo or main square in Mexico City’s Historic Center are several venues well worth exploring – the National Palace, the Templo Mayor and the Cathedral for starters! The seat of power since pre-hispanic times, the National Palace was originally the site of Emperor Moctezuma's home. Spanish explorer Hernan Cortes began construction of his personal mansion here once the Empire was conquered, which eventually became the address of the many Viceroys who served the Spanish Crown. Today it is the official office of the President. 

    We will begin our tour in the National Palace where we will see Diego Rivera's murals (considered by many to be his masterpiece), take a stroll through the Botanical Garden, and stopping to get a glimpse at a few of the archaeological windows remaining. From there, we’ll walk half a block to visit the pre-hispanic ruins of the great Templo Mayor (from the outside).  We will end our tour with a stroll through the emblematic Metropolitan Cathedral, also on the main square.

    When: Wednesday, September 19, 10 am to 1 pm.

    Where: Meeting location will be provided in a separate e-mail closer to the tour date. If you any questions please feel free to contact Lynda Martinez at lyndamartinez@understandmexico.net
