3. Roam around the historic centre of Mexico City
The Mayan people had built their ancient empire on Lake Texcoco in the Valley of Mexico. This great city was connected by various canals and guarded by fortresses. However, when the Spaniards arrived in the 16th Century, they destroyed this city, drained the lake, and built a ‘city of palaces’ over its ruins which served as the capital of New Spain. After gaining its independence, Mexico did not move its capital. The added stylistic influences on top of these ancient ruins have moulded into what we know as the centre of Mexico City today. Its museums, cathedrals, and temples sing a song of an ancient past. It houses the second largest public square in the world, the Zocalo, which is a short distance away from various other important sites.
