Description

Feel the magic of Mexico City's Aztec heritage at this historical site that was once the main temple of the Mexica people in ancient Tenochtitlan. Explore some of the last surviving relics from the Aztec civilization and get an in-depth look at the Templo Mayor Museum.

In 1978, workers from an electric company made a surprising discovery: an eight-ton stone-carving of the Aztec goddess Coyolxāuhqui. Mexico City then decided to demolish the colonial-era buildings and excavate the Templo Mayor.

The archaeological site is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and you can see with your own eyes the ruins of the Aztec capital that existed before Cortes and the conquistadors reached Mexican shores. Set your eyes on the original foundations, and in the museum, you can inspect many of the fascinating items excavated from the dig.

You'll also walk along one of Templo Mayor's oldest streets and see elements of colonial and post-colonial life, such as the former archbishop's palace at the Museo de la Secretaría de Hacienda y Crédito Público.

This ancient site is a Mexico must-see!
