The Plaza Manuel Tolsá. Flanked by impressive buildings, the square holds a statue of Charles IV, king of Spain, at its center. One of the buildings facing the square is the Museo Nacional de Arte which we proceeded to visit.

We visited this place because it was included in our tour, the place has big buildings from back in the days and if you visit during the weekend, they have street vendors, they have street musicians and there is a lot to see around here.

Plaza Tolsa an unbelief square, let me list what you will see:
1) At the center the masterpiece sculpture of Carlos IV "el caballito", until now the second biggest equestrian sculpture made in one time in the world, just after the sculpture of Octavius Cesar Augustus in ancient Rome. But by chance the most beautiful one.
2) At the North: The National Museum of Art, ( 19¨century masterpiece). And the Postal Museum.
3) At the North east: The old Senator Chamber.
4) At the South east: The Army National Museum
5) At the South: The Palacio de Mineria: 18¨century masterpiece with the Manuel Tolsa Museum and the constant exposition of the meteorites.
6) At the south south west: Mail palace, probably the most beautiful civil building in the country
7) At the South west: the Emblematic Palacio de Bellas Artes. The most representative Concert and Opera house of the country with the architecture museum, the mural Gallery and a 19 century inside restaurant.
8) At the West: El Palacio de Garantias, with one of the best national food restaurants: El Cardenal. and The famous Galleria Castillo, an art gallery with the biggest collection at once of the Mexican fine arts.
Each one of the attractions is a must to be in the city.
If you have just 24 Hr to visit Mexico. THIS IS THE PLACE.

This tiny plaza, which one must cross to enter the National Art Museum, is a good spot from which to admire the former mining school across the street. It contains a statue of a Spanish king that no longer resides in the Zocalo. Actually, I rather wonder why it's here.
