Route & Duration
Templo Mayor Museum
The Templo Mayor, or Primary Temple, was the main temple of the Mexica people at Tenochtitlan, which is now Mexico City. Its architectural style dates from Mesoamerica's late Postclassic period and was devoted to Huitzilopochtli, the deity of battle, and Tlaloc, the god of rain and agriculture, each of whom had shrines at the summit of the pyramid with separate stairs. The site is part of Mexico City's Historic Center, which was included to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1987.
Constitution Square, also known as Plaza de la Constitucion and part of which is colloquially known as Zócalo, is a square located in the historic center of Ciudad de Mexico, Cuauhtémoc delegation. Throughout history, it has been known as Place d'Armes, Place Principale, and Place du Palais. Its current name was adopted in 1813 as a tribute to the Spanish Constitution of 1812, often known as the Constitution of Cadiz. Zócalo is a term used to describe the main plaza of Mexican cities but is not the official designation.
Mexico City Metropolitan Cathedral
The cathedral church of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Mexico is the Metropolitan Cathedral of the Assumption of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary into Heaven. It is located on top of the former Aztec holy precinct near the Templo Mayor on the northern side of Mexico City's Plaza de la Constitución (Zócalo). From 1573 until 1813, the cathedral was erected in portions around the previous church that was established soon after the Spanish conquest of Tenochtitlan, eventually replacing it fully. Claudio de Arciniega, a Spanish architect, designed the structure, borrowing influence from Gothic buildings in Spain.
