Zocalo is one of the great architectural buildings on this huge square. An impressive Church./Cathedral overlooking the Plaza Constitucion, next to the 'Temple Museum and Palais. I love Plaza's like this......always people, always a lot to see.
The square was set up with a giant screen from which to watch World Cup games, there were soccer pitches and inflatable playgrounds for kids, and intricately crafted soccer balls to show off the artisinal skills of locals. Lots to see and do here.
The buildings and the cathedral are beautiful! We also enjoyed walking through the Templo Mayor. During our visit the World Cup was happening and there was a huge flat screen playing the WC games, musicians, and gorgeous art. Lots of vendors selling delicious street foods....More
Old town cathedral and Zocalo plaza definitely worth seeing but much was closed off due to the world cup soccer tournament viewing and other demonstrations. Central area and fascinating to view how the buildings are slowly sinking into the ground.
We stayed at a hotel and have the Zocalo as our view from the balcony. This is the 2nd largest square in the world (after St. Petersburg Moscow). Almost every weekend, there's an activity on the Zocalo, farmers' market, live music, etc.

The beating heart of the city lies within Centro Histórico, the vast expanse of historical buildings and monuments that are a must when exploring Mexico City. Places such as the Museo Biblioteca Palacio Postal, Casa de los Azulejos and Palacio de Bellas Artes are the perfect eye candy for anyone seeking to admire arts and architecture. Don't forget to visit the wide variety of markets and plazas where any
vintage item, handicrafts and jewelry characteristic of each state in Mexico can be found on Sundays. Admire majestic views of the city from the Monumento a la Revolución and Torre Latinoamericana, and round out the experience with restaurants of all cuisines nearby.
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.
