Image: The municipal building on the west end of Cholula's town square (plaza mayor or zócalo). The statue in the fountain near the middle of the photo is dedicated to the great progressive 19th century Mexican president Benito Juárez.
Comments: Like almost all Mexican cities except Cuernavaca and Guanajuato, the municipal building is situated opposite the city's main church. To the left is a city park in the center of the town square.
Humanities question
: Compare and contrast the urban planning (i.e., around the cities' main square) in terms of church and state in the following cities: Cholula, Mexico City, Cuernavaca, Mérida, and Guanajuato.
