Mexico City is located almost in the very center of the country. The city is spread out on a hill in the southern part of the Mexican Highlands and is located at an altitude of 2240 m above sea level. Mexico City is surrounded by mountains on all sides.
The city was founded in 1325 by the Aztec Indians. According to legend, the gods ordered the Aztecs to establish a capital on one of the islands of Lake Texcoco, where they will see an eagle (the sacred bird of the Indians) that devours a snake while sitting on a cactus. At the very place where the Indians saw this mysterious sacred symbol, the city of Tenochtitlan was founded. And now here lies the largest metropolis in the world, as well as the oldest and fastest growing city in the New World. This is a real “open-air museum” – there are more than 1400 monuments and historical relics, 10 archaeological zones, both in the city itself and in the vicinity, 8 universities, several academies, more than 80 museums, theaters, concert halls and exhibitions, more than 2 thousand restaurants, dozens of parks and recreation centers. And all this – with a colossal population density! But huge Mexico City,
SURROUNDINGS OF MEXICO CITY
Teotihuacan(Teotihuacan, “the place where the gods are born”) is located 50 km northeast of Mexico City, and is a cult place for many peoples of Mesoamerica. It is still unclear when the first people began to settle here, and why the city was abandoned, but its architectural monuments are amazing. Temple of Quetzalcoatl and 5 km Road of the Dead (40 m wide), Pyramids of the Sun (225 m at the base and 65 m high) and the Moon (about 150 m at the base and 42 m high), Quetzal Papalotl Palace and the Palace of the Jaguars, the ancient Temple of the Feathered Shells, the Palace of the Quetzal Butterflies, the Plaza de la Luna and the residential complex Tepantitla with the famous frescoes of Paradise of Tlaloc – these are just a small part of the local “treasures of history” collected from huge stone blocks and strictly subordinate to some unknown system.
Cholula. Southeast of Mexico City (130 km), in Cholula, there are the ruins of a huge pyramid-matryoshka, lined with giant stone slabs, covered with ornate carvings. A giant 8-kilometer tunnel allows you to get acquainted with the features of the masonry of such colossal ancient structures, and the church located on top of the mound left from the pyramid gives a special “charm” to this unique area.
Tula (65 km from Mexico City) is no less impressive, although still relatively little excavated, the ancient capital of the Toltecs, where a number of objects are still waiting to be taken up by archaeologists. The most famous of the surviving structures is the Pyramid of the Morning Star (also Temple of Quetzalcoatl, Temple of Tlahuizcalpantecuhtli, or Temple B), on the platform of which stands a group of five-meter stone warriors who once carried the roof of the temple. At the entrance there are large statues of snakes. In the XIII century, Tula was finally destroyed. Huge figures of warriors at the foot of the pyramid were ritually buried and thanks to this they have survived to this day.
