Estado de Mexico

Estado de Mexico

SSP

Mexico city is located on the spot where long ago the Aztecs built their capital city of Tenochtitlan, according to directions given to them by their god, or so the legend says. Mexico City impressed the Spaniards when they first arrived because of the beautiful setting in the middle of a lake. The present day Mexico City is sure to impress you, but for completely different reasons.

Mexico City is the biggest city on the planet. it also has the most inhabitants at over 7000 ft elevation in the world. It should have about 25 million inhabitants or more, but no one seems to be really sure. What is sure is that when you visit the city you will be stunned by the sheer size of the place. The descent into Mexico City's Benito Juarez International Airport is unforgetable. After hours of flying over empty desert plains, you cross a ridge and...though you're still at reasonably high altitude...the city beneath you extends off into the distance as far as the eye can see. For the next quarter hour the end remains out of sight...in fact, the end is NEVER in sight.

Nightlife in Mexico City is amazingly diverse and covers just about every form of entertainment imaginable. Within this huge metropolis area you will find many museums, parks, colonial buildings, modern high rise buildings, an Aztec pyramid, affordable and world class restaurants, the longest street/avenue in the world, the biggest University in the world with about 500,000 students and the largest stadium in the world. Mexico City is simply a world onto itself.

To be short: The climate here is very nice, and you are sure to enjoy yourself, if you know where to look. Although the traffic jams may cause a problem, you will find it much more suitable and enjoyable to explore the city by foot, as it will let you see how truly amazing it is.

Basilica de Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe
Edit This

Within the northern city limits is the famous Basilica of Guadalupe, not just another church, but the central place of worship for Mexico's patron saint, and the home of the image responsible for uniting pre-Hispanic Indian mysticism with Catholic beliefs. The Virgin of Guadalupe is the most revered image in the country, and you will no doubt see her countenance wherever you travel in Mexico.

The basilica is located on the site where, on December 9, 1531, a poor Indian named Juan Diego is reputed to have seen a vision of a beautiful lady in a blue mantle. The local bishop, more..

Cathedral Metropolitana
Edit This
i

An impressive, towering cathedral, begun in 1573 and finished in 1788, it blends baroque, neoclassic, and Mexican churrigueresque architecture. As you look around the cathedral and the Sagrario next to it, note how the building has sunk into the soft lake bottom beneath. The base of the facade is far from level and straight, and when one considers the weight of the immense towers, it's no surprise. Permanent scaffolding is in place to stabilize the building. In Mexico, the sacred ground of one religion often becomes the sacred ground of its successor. Cortés and his Spanish more..

Centro Historico (downtown Mexico City) is a good area to visit for things such as pirated DVDs, VCDs, X-Box, PS2 games and etc. Easily reachable by Metro stop San Juan de Letran on Linea 8 (Green line), it's basically a street full of vendors of all sorts.

Templo Mayor and Museo del Templo Mayor
Edit This

The Museo del Templo Mayor (Museum of the Great Temple) opened in 1987. To enter it, take the walkway to the large building in the back portion of the site, which contains fabulous artifacts from on-site excavations. Inside the door, a model of Tenochtitlán gives a good idea of the scale of the vast city of the Aztecs. The rooms and exhibits are organized by subject on many levels around a central open space. You'll see some marvelous displays of masks, figurines, tools, jewelry, and other artifacts, including the huge stone wheel of the moon goddess Coyolxauhqui ("she with more..

Not really a park but still a relaxing way to spend an afternoon.

Alameda Park
Edit This

Today, the lovely tree-filled Alameda Central Park attracts pedestrians, cotton-candy vendors, strollers, lovers, and organ grinders. Long ago, the site of the Alameda was an Aztec marketplace. When the conquistadors took over in the mid-1500s, heretics were burned at the stake there under the Spanish Inquisition. In 1592, the governor of New Spain, Viceroy Luis de Velasco, converted it to a public park.

Museo Frida Kahlo
Edit This

Although during her lifetime Frida Kahlo was known principally as the wife of muralist Diego Rivera, today her own art now surpasses his in popularity. Kahlo's life was dedicated both to her painting and her passionate, tortured love for her husband. Her emotional and physical pain--her spine was pierced during a serious streetcar accident in her youth--were the primary subjects of her canvases, many of which are self portraits. These paintings are now acknowledged as not only exceptional works of Latin American art, but some of the purest artistic representations of female more..

Iglesia y Hospital de Jesus Nazareno
Edit This

This church was founded by Hernán Cortéz soon after the Conquest. A stone marker on Pino Suárez marks it as the spot where Cortéz and Montezuma reportedly met for the first time. Cortéz died in Spain in 1547, but his remains are in a vault inside the chapel (entered by a side door on República del Salvador). Vaults on the opposite wall store the remains of Cortéz's relatives. Notice the Orozco mural, The Apocalypse, on the choir ceiling.

There are a number of places to visit from Mexico City on a day-trip, since it is in a Central location of transportation. Besides driving or taking a conducted tour, you could also bus it, from one of Mexico City's bus stations. Some of them do deserve an overnight visit though.

Taxco
Edit This

The beautiful silver town of Taxco is about 150 minutes from the Southern Bus Station in Mexico City (fare is MXN105 one way). Besides visiting the church on the main square and some of the museums, it is great to just wander around the town.

Where the Men Became Gods, or so the Aztecs thought. This UNESCO Heritage site is about a hour outside Mexico City. There are daily tours to this site (please bring comfortable walking shoes as there is loads of walking and climbing), or you could take a bus from Autobuses del Norte costing about MXN 28 one-way.

The Pyramids of the Sun and Moon are spectacular and will take your breath away. Else, the climb up one or both of them will! Note that the Temple of the Feathered Serpent is currently closed for restoration.
