Ciudad de México
Mexico’s capital was founded by Amerindians (Native Americans) just like Quito. It is the oldest capital city in the Americas .
The fact that the city was built on a lake maybe the reason why we see so many old buildings, mainly churches, sinking
Church of San Francisco
Church of Guadalupe
(Tetl-stone; Nochtli- Indian fig / cactus pear; Tlan- abundance)
In1585 it was officially known as Ciudad de México (Mexico City).
It is the 10th largest city in the world in terms of population and the 3rd in the American continent after New York and São Paulo.
Our guide told us that after London it is the second city with more museums. In fact it has so much to see...
