  • To think that we were 26 students right where the '68 massacre was, it's kind of exhausting and to some extent sad, to be there to see the history of that place, to be able to feel the vibes and emotions in full bloom, is inexplicable.

  • I visited it as part of a tour that took me to Teotihuacán and in that context I found it interesting and that contributed a lot to the proposal. Perhaps as an isolated and distant visit from other points of interest, it is not worth the mobilization. But symbolically and transcendently this square has a lot. At a glance (and with reading or guided help) one can appreciate a small sample of the historical layers that cover this city. Pre-Hispanic, Colonial and Modern culture follow and unwelcome one over each other as capricious and inevitable slaps. As if culture were short, nature brought the 1985 earthquake to shake history and withstand only the stubbornest and harshest of it. A well-loaded and substantial visit.

  • We took a tour here as part of a small group. There is a lot of sad history here. I always wanted to come here for myself to soak it all in. It's beautiful all around with the ruins, the cathedral, and the plaza.
  • very cool site showing 3 mexican eras. the pre-columbian, the conquest, and the modern era. definitely travel with a guide who will explain the history behind what you'll see.
