With a population of more than 20 million people, Mexico City is one of the largest cities in the world. Only in recent years, travelers have been making their way to the Mexican capital to find themselves pleasantly surprised with everything this metropolis has to offer.
Here, vestiges from Pre-Hispanic and colonial times harmoniously mingle with contemporary forces. These influences create a tapestry that can be experienced and seen in every aspect of daily life, from the buildings that frame the city to the unimaginable array of quality food that can be found on a street corner, in a market, or a world-renowned restaurant.
Following Paris, it is the city with the second-highest number of museums – an artistic richness that, combined with the country’s history of muralism, has been spilling into the streets.
