Mexico's capital is dynamic and cosmopolitan, with huge pyramids and hillside colonial towns nearby.

Spread out in a huge mountain bowl, bustling, dynamic and cosmopolitan Mexico City combines ancient heritage and modern style in the very heart of the country. It is a city of magnificent government buildings, theatres and churches, of renovated public spaces, museums and live music. Although it might seem overwhelming at first glance, exploring the historic centre, or meandering through one of its charming barrios will soon have you immersed in one of the most fascinating and energising cities in Latin America. Notable landmarks include Zocolo, the third largest square in the world, the stunning Palacio de Bellas Artes, the city's most recognisable building and the Metropolitan Cathedral, the largest of its kind in the Americas. The art of Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo adorn museums, whilst on the outskirts are the immense pilgrimage site Basílica de Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe and the Chapultepec park, the lungs of the city and the biggest urban park in the Western Hemisphere.

On the outskirts of the city, the huge pyramids of Teotihuacan are a must. The third largest pyramid in the world, Pyramid of the Sun is surrounded by avenues, buildings and numerous more pyramids, cultural art objects, sculptures and images of life but no written language. The history of this pre-Aztec civilisation site is still a mystery.
