Mexico City

Mexico City, built on top of the ruins of the Aztec city of Tenochtitlan, is one of the world’s oldest, continually inhabited cities and also one of its largest with a population of over 22 million.

Why visit Mexico City ?

  • Visit one of the hundreds’ museums on pre-Hispanic, colonial and modern art
  • Sip some smooth and smoky `mezcals` at the tasting salons of Roma and Condesa
  • Sample street food at the covered mercados and the tianguis
  • Soak in the bohemian atmosphere of Tlalpan

There is plenty to see and do – the city has five Aztec temples, the largest cathedral on the continent and 11 ecological parks. The central Zocalo is the third largest square in the world and has witnessed a wealth of historical, religious and political development since the 14th century.

The archaeological site of Teotihuacan is one of the country’s major tourist attractions. In the past it was one of the largest and most complex metropolis in pre-hispanic Mexico. Its main structures include the Pyramid of the Sun, the Pyramid of the Moon and the Temple of Quetzalcoatl, as well as an on-site museum. Another highlight are the floating gardens of Xochimilco.

The Frida Kahlo and Dolores Olmedo Museums offer a fascinating insight in Mexican art and culture.
