Indiana Jones called, and said you’ll be uncovering the secrets that lie below Mexico City in the form of ancient Aztec ruins.

Alright, not quite. But you will be joining one of our hosts, an archaeologist, to discover what happened after the Spanish conquered Tenochtitlan and renamed it, all but destroying any traces of the civilization that went before them.

Today, residents are proud of their blended Mexica and Spanish heritage and it’s evident all over the city. Visit sacred historic sites, colonial neighborhoods and an ancient barrio, among other ancient relics.

Immerse yourself in Mexico City’s culture and history through exploring Templo Mayor, Zócalo and the Centro Historico. We find it most fascinating to see how modern Mexican culture is informed by its Aztec roots, and we’re sure you’ll see evidence of it everywhere you look - now that you know where to look, that is.
