Plaza Santo Domingo, Mexico City: 2 reviews and 1 photos
I'm setting up this page in geographical order, so if you've been reading each tip so far we've been exploring the area right around the Zocalo. If you head a few blocks north of the Zocalo, you'll reach Plaza Santo Domingo, which appears a little run down, but has some interesting sights. The church of Santo Domingo dominates the northern end of the square. On the eastern side, you'll find the Museo de la Medicina, which is free to visit and was the site of the Inquisition in New Spain. Brutal sentences were handed down here to those deemed heretics and the museum today also has many exhibits related to medicinal practices of the region.
The center of the square has an interested fountain and was filled with vendors selling all kinds of knick knacks when I visited.
