English: The Zócalo — the main plaza of the Historical Center of Mexico City, and a landmark of México City−México, D. F.
  • The name comes from the Spanish word zócalo for base, from a monument base built for a Mexican War of Independence Monument, that was never completed.
  • Many other cities and towns in México use the term for their main plazas also now.
  • The Zócalo and surrounding buildings are part of the Centro Historico World Heritage Site.
