Mexico City Holidays

Mexico City lies at the heart of this colourful and prosperous country. Dating from 12th century, it is the oldest urban centre in the Americas. It was called Tenochtitlan by the Aztecs, who founded the original city on an island in Lake Texcoco in 1325.  Hernan Cortez and his Spanish conquistadors arrived in 1519 and the city was largely destroyed in 1521, following an Aztec revolt and a devastating Spanish siege. It was rebuilt to Spanish designs and standards in order to erase all trace of the old Aztec culture and quickly grew to dominate the whole region as the capital of New Spain.
 
The city is now a sprawling, exciting powerhouse with an economy larger than some neighbouring countries. With over 30 million inhabitants, Greater Mexico City is the largest Spanish speaking city in the world. In recent years it has revolutionised its cultural, entertainment and food scene, which means there is a tremendous amount to do and see.

Many of the Roman Catholic churches built during the colonial period can be seen today, including the Catedral Metropolitana, built on the side of the famous Zócalo, the vast main square and former Aztec ceremonial centre. The National Palace, with its famous murals by Diego Rivera, and the ruins of the ancient Templo Meyor, one of the Aztec’s principal monuments, are also on the square. This multi-cultural historic centre of Mexico City is justifiably a World Heritage Site. If you like wall paintings, the Palacio de Belles Artes, a concert hall and arts centre, houses more enormous murals by world famous Mexican artists. The Salon Tenampa, the renowned cantina on Plaza Garibaldi, contains murals of the ‘the giants of Mexican song’.
 
Museums (over 160) and monuments abound, with great food, shopping, parks and folkloric ballet, with its beautiful traditional costumes, songs and dances. In particular, do not miss the magnificent 45 metre Golden Angel of Independence, on the Paseo de la Reforma, one of the city’s main thoroughfares modelled on Paris’s Champs-Elysees.
 
The Palace of Fine Arts, Chapeltepec Park and Castle, the Shrine of Guadalupe and the world famous Anthropology and Soumaya museums are also popular attractions and highly recommended.
 
25 miles away are the magnificent remains of Teotihuacan, a great urban centre established in 300BCE and another of Mexico’s World Heritage Sites. The Teotihuacans preceded the Mayans and the Aztecs and bequeathed religious order and government to Mesoamerica. The name means ‘the place where the gods live’ and the city once extended to twenty square kilometres with some 150,000 inhabitants. The ruins include the enormous Pyramids of the Sun and the Moon, connected by the Avenue of the Dead. See too the Palace of the Jaguars and the beautiful Temple of Quetzalpapaloti – the divine butterfly. By all means walk this astonishing site, but for a really unforgettable visit, see it from a hot air balloon – they are based nearby.
 
Mexico City holidays, with all their sights and sounds, allow you to explore one of the great cities of the world. Holidays to Mexico City will not be complete until you see these treasures  for yourself.
