Mexico City, located in the Valley of Mexico at the center of the country, is the economic, historic, and cultural heart of the nation. The city was founded in 1521 and won its independence in 1821, but that’s not all there is to the city’s history. Prior to Spanish colonialization in the early 16th century, several ancient cultures, including the Aztecs, thrived in the area. Today, ancient ruins can be found side by side with colonial and modern-day structures. In this Expedition, we’ll explore some of the sites in Mexico’s capital city that best reflect the city’s art, culture, history, and architecture.
