Mexico 2: Mexico City

Mexico  2: Mexico City

Mexico City, capital of Mexico and the center of the nation's political, cultural, and economic life, is one of the world's largest cosmopolitan cities. Originally built by the Aztecs it was the capital of their might empire. Here we explore the Palacio de Bellas Artes, a palace of the performing arts; the Catedral Metropolitana, the Metropolitan Cathedral, or "the jewel of the Zócalo," which took nearly 300 years to complete and is the largest church in Latin America. Next we visit the most important archeological ruins in Mexico, the ruins of Teotihuacán, located 30 miles north of Mexico City, and see what remains of a once thriving civilization that dates back to somewhere around 300 BC. Here one can climb the 243 steps to the top of the Pyramid of the Sun, which is the third largest pyramid in the world; also we explore ancient roadways and vestiges of other dwellings. We too explore the Plaza de Toros Monumental de Mexico, which is the world's largest bullfighting arena; and at the Plaza Garibaldi, we hear Mariachi music, the official music of Mexico. 04/10DE IJSCA 30 min.
