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.
