Several old buildings surround the plaza and it really is a nice place to visit. The beautiful cathedral, located in the centre also has beautiful architecture, with Spanish influences. Much of this area of Mexico has a very Spanish influences in terms of architecture. There are also many attractions to see further away from the centre. Many people staying here choose to spend a day in Mexico City, the capital city, as it is just a 3 hour drive away. However. if you desire something closer the aquduct is just a shirt drive away. This Roman invention is quite remarkable as it does seem out of place, but it really is a little taste of Rome in Mexico. This is where car hire is useful as it can let you visit attractions outside the city centre.
