Head to the heart of Queretaro's historic center at Plaza de Armas, a bustling town square. Surrounded by 18th century architecture, the square represents a good point from which to view the city's colonial manors and mansions. A photographer's eye will be drawn to the open aspect of the square, in contrast to the often cramped streets around the historic center. Choose from a number of atmospheric restaurants, bars, and cafes, which line the square and offer alfresco wining and dining. The square's central fountain is topped by a statue of Juan Antonio de Urrutia y Arana, the nobleman and benefactor who funded so much of the city's development. Work out when and for how long to visit Plaza de Armas and other Queretaro City attractions using our handy Queretaro City road trip planner.
