- 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.
