    Zona Colonial

    by Monoii Written Jul 1, 2005

    Visit the colonial district of the first European city in the Americas!
    Walk through the famous El Conde (pedestrian street), until you get to the Parque Colon and the Catedral Primada de America, the first church in the New World.

    Casa de Hernan Cortez

    This is supposed to be the oldest street in the city. Here are a national panteon and a palace occupied by Cortez before he went to Mexico, among many other ancient structures.

    Take an early morning stroll around the old city and see the many beautiful and historic buildings there, the cathedral is especially lovely, particularly if you can get there before the crowds

    Entrance to the Colonial District

    This is one of the entrances to the Colonial District. It is also called Zona Colonial, Ciudad Colonial and Colonial City and I found it is amazing how well-preserved it is.

    Town Hall

    The Palacio Consistorial or the Town Hall. It is a beautiful building and perfectly matches the feel of the Colonial District.
