Mexico City, or CDMX, is a place where history comes alive through its architecture and traditions.
In the 14th century, the Aztecs founded Tenochtitlán, a prosperous city built on an island in a lake. Later, in the 16th century, Spanish conquistadors transformed the city into the center of the viceroyalty of New Spain. This fusion of cultures left an indelible mark on architecture and daily life.

At the very heart of the city stands the majestic Templo Mayor, itself an archaeological site. Before colonization, it housed a temple that served as the ceremonial center of the ancient Mexican city of Tenochtitlan. The adjacent museum exhibits a vast collection of archaeological artefacts recovered during excavations.

Leaving the Templo Mayor, look out over the majestic Palacio Nacional, witness to countless historic moments. Its walls house murals by Diego Rivera, telling the story of Mexico from Antiquity to the Mexican Revolution.

Continuing along Reforma Avenue, we come across an emblematic monument, the imposing Angel de la Independencia. It was inaugurated in 1910 to commemorate the centenary of Mexican independence.

Nearby, at the heart of the Chapultepec forest, stands the majestic Chapultepec Castle. This royal palace has witnessed the history of Mexico, from the time of the Aztecs to today’s presidential residence. The museum houses a vast collection of works of art, historical objects and documents that tell the country’s story.

Another unique experience awaits you in Xochimilco, where you can cruise the canals in the colorful trajineras. Xochimilco has received national and international recognition. In 1987, it was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its cultural value and its unique system of chinampas, which represent a form of sustainable agriculture and a model of harmonious coexistence between man and nature.

CDMX experiences can be closer than you think, visiting neighborhoods such as La Condesa, Coyoacán, La Roma and, of course, San Ángel.

La Condesa stands out for the impressive cultural growth that has transformed the area into a paradise for art and history lovers.

Walking through La Condesa under the jacarandas becomes an experience where elegant colonial architecture blends with contemporary art. You can explore Parque España or Parque México, bookshops, cafés, restaurants, art galleries, cultural life and nightlife.

The next stop should be La Roma. This is a district where you can still find traditional establishments such as old bookshops, vinyl stores and theaters inside beautiful old buildings. It’s notable for its interesting examples of art nouveau architecture.

Roma is also a landmark colony in Mexican cinema, where films such as Alfonso Cuarón’s ¨ROMA¨ have been shot. During your visit, don’t miss the micro-neighborhood known as La Romita, with its village atmosphere, where the 17th-century temple of Santa María de la Natividad or San Francisco Javier stands out.

Coyoacán is one of Mexico City’s oldest and most culturally rich neighborhoods. It retains a neo-colonial charm that has attracted several generations of Mexican and foreign intellectuals, including such iconic figures as Octavio Paz, Salvador Novo, Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo and Leon Trotsky.

Coyoacán is known as the “cultural heart of Mexico” and has been the setting for many internationally acclaimed films and novels.

Not-to-be-missed cultural experiences in Coyoacán include: Fonoteca Nacional, Museo Frida Kahlo, Casa Azul, Museo Diego Rivera Anahuacalli, Casa de León Trotsky, among others.

Finally, we arrive in San Angel, a district that is a living example of tradition and culture around every corner. This former colonial town has become a culturally diverse and exciting space.

Cobblestone streets, romantic parks and old colonial mansions add to the charm of the cafés and restaurants in the colonial district of San Angel, one of the most beautiful neighborhoods in southern Mexico City,” is how National Geographic Traveler magazine describes San Angel. In 2010, it was named one of Mexico City’s tangible and intangible cultural heritage sites.


Continuing your tour of the city, you’ll find the Palacio de Bellas Artes, a masterpiece housing the finest works of Mexican art and culture. This neoclassical building is also home to the National Symphony Orchestra of Mexico. The Palacio de Bellas Artes has received recognition and awards in a variety of fields. In 1987, like Xochimilco, it was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

As night falls, the city comes alive in Plaza Garibaldi, where mariachi sing their songs, filling the air with Mexican rhythms and infectious energy. Music, dance and laughter intertwine in this unique experience.

In conclusion, Mexico City is a destination that invites you to immerse yourself in history, appreciate its rich culture and revel in its unique flavors. This is why it has been recognized by UNESCO for its historical and cultural value. It is home to over 150 museums, more than even cities like Paris and London. It’s a complete experience that will leave you with unforgettable memories and a deep appreciation of Mexican authenticity. Get ready to experience Mexico City!
