Why Visit Mexico City?

"Mexico city is a mixture of old ruins, colonial buildings, and modern high-rises. Its heart is the vast Zocalo, which is Mexico's main square."

The capital of Mexico is located in the central region of Mexico at 2,250m above sea level. It has a beautiful backdrop of the Popocatepetl, Iztaccihuatl volcanoes. Mexico City, one of the largest metropolitan areas in the world, is also the oldest in the Western Hemisphere. It was founded in 14th-century Tenochtitlan by the Aztecs. Hernan Cortes, a Spanish conqueror, was awestruck at the majestic temples of Aztecs. Cortes tried to describe the grandeur of what he saw, but he was unable to report back to King Carlos V. Imagine the King's shock when he learned that one of the plazas was twice as large as that of Salamanca and that the principal pyramid is higher than that of Seville. He also discovered that the stone and woodwork that decorated these monuments could 'never be bettered.
