I love the history of Mexico, particularly the Aztec and Maya Indians. Mexico was actually the capital once of the grand Aztec empire which existed at around 1325 to 1521. The Aztec people were once the mightiest people who lived in the valley where Mexico now lies. Then, they were able to conquer all living beings in the valley wherein mexico cities are now located. The Aztecs and their first buildings date to about 200 BC.
The story is that the Aztec people actually did see this view of the lake Taxcoco and they stayed and built the city of Tenochtitlan. The story of the Aztecs and Tenochtitlan said on the crest of the Mexican flag.
Apparently, when an explorer named Cortez saw Tenochtitlan, he was overwhelmed by its beauty, sophistication, and size. In 1500, it is estimated that between 200,000 to 250,000 people lived in Tenochtitlan, which was more than four times the population of London, England at the time. Finally, in May 1521, Tenochtitlan was conquered by Cortez. By way of colonization, her background and rituals was also passed to Mexico. The country’s background is the outcome of the mixing of original and Spanish traditions, foods, music, religion, and architecture.
A trip to Mexico City is a special tourist experience that every person ought to encounter at least once in a lifetime. The city itself is among the largest on the planet, and it has plenty to offer to travelers and locals alike.
The dry warm climate sets in January and lasts through February, making it the ideal time for sightseeing. There are a lot of items to do in Mexico City and no matter what your budget is, you will locate something of interest.
For example, the Union Square hosts the famous Union Square Greenmarket where holidaymakers can shop for local make; the market is stated to include over 1,000 various varieties of fruit and vegetable alone.
Valle De Bravo is a beautiful colonial town about 2 hours from Mexico City. It is a beautiful monument that was built to honor and pay tribute to the heroes of the independence of Mexico. The hill in the area was also the site of the Battle of Chapultepec in 1847 between the United States and Mexico. I recommend this site to anyone who wants to know about the history of Mexico.
Just Puebla is a Puebla in Mexcio City. There is a great debate about the people who built the city. It is a city that is waiting for you to discover it. Ask where to find local Fondas to help you explore the city. It is in the southern part of the city.
Charco de Las Ranas is one of the best taquerias in town. It is located in a pretty town 2 hours from Mexico City. Mexico City Zoo is located at Chapultepec Park which is commonly called Chapultepec Forest Park.
Apart from various art galleries, museums, forests, and monuments, Monterrey is also the industrial capital of all the mexico cities with the headquarters of many huge industries situated right here.
León is not only the capital of Guanajuato state and another main city in this country, it is also a major center for the manufacturing of shoes and clothing. As such it has become a great place to shop for the latest styles in coats, jackets and everyday fashion.
Taking your time to explore numerous cities within Mexico is something that I recommend to everyone that comes for a visit. This country is rich in tradition and you only have to travel a few miles for things to be completely different from where you last were.
