There is always something going on at Plaza de Armas. This time, we came across the festive sign of 2017 to welcome the upcoming New Year. It's always a good idea to just stop here, sit and get the feeling of old Querétaro seep into your veins. A good place to hunt for coffee, a glass of wine or good... More

This place is great..we had teenagers with us and they had great fun taking pictures and going to all the vendors around the Plaza seeing all the different Nick Naks that they had. It felt safe as well if you know what I mean.

One of most beautiful places in Queretaro. If you want to spent some time sitting in the shade watching locals and tourists going around, or have a good coffee, food or drink, shop, listen to the live music... this is the place. Love it!

Queretaro's historic center is a fun place to walk around and eat and visit the historic sites. The Plaza de Armas is a pleasant spot in the middle of things to rest for awhile, have a drink, people watch.

This past weekend we were walking around Old Town Queretaro when we heard this wonderful music coming from our destination. As we emerged on the Plaza de Armas a folk dancing festival was in full swing. And this went on all day. Every two hours a different show...not just folk dancing. We drew the limit at the comedy show as... More

Each time I go to Queretaro I always make time to spend a little time at the Plaza de Armas. It's great for people watching and soaking up the local culture. It can get quite lively in the evenings over the weekend. There are a couple of good restaurants on the square that I enjoy eating at. Overall, the Plaza... More
