Zócalo, Mexico City

Mexico, North America: The Zócalo is the literal and figurative hub of Mexico City

Mexico City
Mexico 06060's insider take:

The huge town square, the Plaza de la Constitución—also known as the Zócalo—is the center of the city in every respect. It features three not-to-be-missed sights: the remains of the 14th- and 15th-century Templo Mayor, core of the Aztec city Tenochtitlán (though the Aztecs are referred to here by their proper name, the Mexica); the Catedral Metropolitana, built over 300 years in a jumble of architectural styles (it's also listing alarmingly—hence the scaffolding); and the Palacio Nacional, with its Diego Rivera murals.
