The history behind Mexico City is pretty cool if you ask me. It starts in 1325 with the Aztecs. They built the city of Tenochtitlan on an island in Lake Texcoco. Fast forward to 1585 where history tells us that Tenochtitlan officially became known as Mexico City. What I find interesting about this is that underneath modern-day Mexico City lies an ancient civilization in the form of amazing archeological sites like Templo Mayor.
Even today, additional archeological sites are being discovered inside Mexico City. In this way, the Aztecs and their city of Tenochtitlan are still with us and we continue to learn about their people and culture. Templo Mayor is a perfect example of this. Be sure to visit this site when you visit Mexico City!
Did you know that Amazon US ships to Mexico? We have never lost a shipment. Try it now!
Have a great day wherever you are in the world! Signing off, Tina

Buy me a cup of coffee
A ridiculous amount of coffee was consumed in the process of creating this project. Add some fuel if you'd like to keep me going ;-) Gracias!

I live in Mexico with my hubby and four kiddos. I keep busy with homeschooling, traveling, and my Bible ministry. I love photography and writing, so I blog. My family is a little nutty but nutty is never boring and always an adventure. And I love adventure!
