Mexican treasures under the colonial city
In 1325, the Aztec tribe undertook the construction of its town Tenochtitlan on an islet of the Lake of Texcoco, which was destroyed two centuries later by the Spanish conquerors to build on its ruins the capital of New Spain. In the last decades of the twentieth century, Mexican archaeologists have endeavored to reveal the ruins of the great Tenochtitlan through multiple excavations and archaeological investigations.
In this tour we invite you to trace the footsteps of the sacred enclosure that lie beneath various historical buildings of New Spain as the Cathedral, the National Palace and the Archbishop's Palace, and know the archaeological site and museum of the Templo Mayor, who keep the archaeological treasures that Specialists have managed to rescue from oblivion.
