This is the centre of Monterrey and a great place to stroll day or evening. The area around the municipal palace is very interesting with nice historic buildings and museums.

We took the boat from the Fundidora and docked at the Macroplaza. There is such an amazing amount of history and culture in this one place. Statues that tell the history of Monterrey, buildings all around that show the development from old world to the...More

A decent but average central plaza by the normal standards in Mexico. Not too many shops or restaurants ... mostly just the city and state government buildings and nothing more. Not lively at all.

You can visit churches around the macroplaza, as well as museums, and also take a boat to Fundidora. It is recommended to visit Monterrey's centre.

Take time to walk the entire plaza from Constitucion to the Governor's Place especially on a weekend when the crowds are out. Street food and drinks, performers, street artists, small arts and crafts, as well as modern wares, can all be found here. You might...More
