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.

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.

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.

If weather is fine, you should seen at least one group. There are no scheduled performances. They are street dancers. Purely tourist stuff.
