Plaza Álvarez, more commonly known as the Zócalo, is Alcapulco's main square where people-watching is free. On Friday and Saturday nights, it is filled with street performers, musicians and clowns. On the square is a Moorish cathedral with domes and towers, built in 1930. It named after Acapulco's patron saint Nuestra Señora de la Soledad (Our Lady of Solitude). The walk from the Zocalo along the waterfront is a cruising area at night.
