This area is a significant tourist site and is recommended when visiting Mexico City. The atmosphere is relaxed. Spend some time walking the surrounding streets and open stalls.

What a visit! These ruins are in the middle of Mexico City! It’s about 3.5 dollars and worth so much more. We sped through it in an hour but you could spend so much more time there

When there isn't anything occupying the square, it can be grand but rather dull. At night, they light up the government buildings on two sides of the square with colored lights. Very beautiful!

2 hours should be plenty of time to walk around and visit the church & possibly the museums. This is definitely not a whole day thing, after 2-3 hours you would want to get some rest or go have something to eat.
