Zitácuaro, Michoacán, Mexico

Commencing in the 1500s, the Laws of the Indies provided a template for town planning in Spain's New World possessions. One of the Laws states that there should "always be sufficient space where people may go to for recreation and take their cattle to pasture without them making any damage." Ergo, in the center of every town was the Plaza Major.
