Mexico City


"In Mexico City life is as intense as its own urban layout. Thus, in the same street is possible to find the most sophisticated buildings living with archaeological remains and sellers of tamales. Tradition and modernity a few meters away. The ancient Tenochtitlan, capital of the Aztecs, is today a magical, powerful and vibrant city that overflows what it occupies and, as its inhabitants say, ‘never ends.’ " Excerpt From: Jacobo G. García and Beto R. Lanz. "Lonely Planet Mexico City (CDMX)."

In the soil beneath El Zócalo archaeological remains, such as the Stone of the Sun, well known as the Aztec Calendar, have been found.
