Proceeding to Zocalo Plaza, the spectacle of Rivera's murals or the inner courtyard of the National Palace is seen. The nearby 200-year-old Grand Metropolitan Cathedral and San Ildefonso Museum are notable attractions. Moreover, the cathedral is said to have taken several centuries to construct.
At the end of the tour, lunch is recommended at Centro Cultural de Espana (behind the cathedral), or Café Takuba on Takuba Street.
