"The Plaza Major, or grand square of Mexico, is one of the finest that exists." William Bullock #QotD

2014.12.14-IMG_3040"The Plaza Major, or grand square of Mexico, is one of the finest that exists. The east side is occupied by the grand cathedral, and segrario, or parish church; the north by the splendid palace of the Viceroy; the south by a fine row of houses, the centre of which is a palace built by Cortez, and now called the Casa de Stada."
