With an enormous surface area and a wealth of history and tradition, the Mexican capital’s beautiful tourist attractions and friendly locals draw in thousands of visitors every year. Known as Tenochtitlán during the Aztec Empire, the city was passed to Spanish hands in the 16th century, when it transformed into the capital of the Viceroyalty of New Spain. Today, the city is an impressive, modern metropolis, where vestiges of both civilisations live together harmoniously.
The Old Town, which you can visit by taking one of our cheap flights to Mexico, is a prime example of this. In Constitution Square, known as the Zócalo, the Metropolitan Cathedral stands as a symbol of Christianity, and, just a few metres away, you will find the archaeological zone of Templo Mayor, the main Aztec religious centre. Another of the city’s main attractions is Chapultepec Park. Serving as the lung of the city, here you will find the castle of the same name, the Museum of Modern Art and, above all, the magnificent National Museum of Anthropology. Outside the park, the Palace of Fine Arts Museum is a must-see. First opened in 1934, it was the country’s first art museum and its collection includes some of the best examples of Mexican Muralism. For lovers of Mexican art and culture, don’t miss the museum dedicated to Frida Kahlo, at her home in the neighbourhood of Coyoacán.
For a peaceful walk stroll through some of the most picturesque suburbs, head to the Roma, Condesa and San Ángel neighbourhoods. One of the most popular areas for vibrant nightlife is what is known as the ‘Pink Zone’, located in the Juárez district. This area is home to numerous LGBT-friendly bars and is considered to be Mexico City’s most tolerant neighbourhood.
