Centro Histórico

Mexico City's Centro Histórico district has the largest concentration of museums, cultural sites, and general points of interest in the entire city.

Being terribly easy to navigate (even when you're lost), it's a great introduction to the city, and a trip back in time.

Most people will begin at the Zócalo. We've put together a guide to the sites immediately surround the Zócalo, here

From there, things just get more interesting.
