Catedral MetropolitanaWe continued straight to the Templo Mayor, the main temple of the Aztec capital of Tenochtitlan. We perused the temple ruins, and by perused we mean, dragging the stroller up and down lots of stairs, and tried to decipher what the cryptic signs were explaining. Then we headed into the attached museum, to see some of the artifacts that had been found there.

By this time we were starving and excited to find a fabulous Indian restaurant, hidden in the portales along the edge of the Zocalo. It took a bit of searching but it was well worth it! We took the opportunity of being so close to retire to the apartment for an afternoon break before heading back out to dinner, in an overpriced mediocre restaurant with fabulous views from the top of a hotel right on the Zocalo. It was an appropriate ending to our Centro Historico Day.
heading out again, Plaza Santo Domingo (opposite church)
