Learn Spanish in one of the biggest cities in the world! Mexico City is located in the center of the country and “la DF”, as the capital is commonly referred to by Mexicans, has a lot to offer. It is a modern, cosmopolitan city situated in an old lake basin that is surrounded by volcanic mountains. The original Aztec city was established on March 18th, 1325 as Tenochtitlan, and immediately became the center of a growing empire. After centuries of pre-Columbian civilization, Spanish conquistador Hernan Cortes first arrived in the area in 1519. He did not succeed in conquering the city until August 1521, after a 79-day siege that destroyed most of the old Aztec city. In 1525, the rebuilt city served as the capital of the viceroyalty of New Spain and the political and cultural center of Mexico. This colonial period culminated with the construction of the baroque Metropolitan Cathedral and the Basilica of Guadalupe.

The various cultures that inhabited the city over the centuries left an interesting architectural legacy, comprised of many different styles. The city has a touch of modernism, which can be seen through its huge skyscrapers, such as the Torre Mayor and Torre Latinoamericana. In addition, it boasts a historical center and water gardens in the suburb Xochimilco, which belong to the world culture heritage of UNESCO.

The main attractions offered by Mexico City are the Palace of Bellas Artes, a beautiful white, marble palace located in the center of the city; the Plaza de Las Tres Culturas, which shows three very important facets of Mexican architecture: pre-Hispanic, colonial, and modern; the Castillo de Chapultepec, an old castle that was home to Austrian dynasties; and the Mexico City Cathedral and Villa of Guadalupe, which showcase the city's colonial heritage.

Not far from the main city, you can find the pyramids of the sun and the moon in Teotihuacan (45 minute drive from downtown). The pyramid in Cuicuilco, located in the southern part of the city, features a peculiar circular structure that is half hidden by the lava that was spewed from the Xitle volcano more than three thousand years ago. All of the beautiful city's unique history can be experienced at the Museum of Anthropology near the center of the city.

Mexico City´s nightlife is one of the best in the world, as it is filled with lively bars, discos, and mariachis! The Condesa and Insurgentes districts feature a plethora of bars and activities. Need to shop? The many options to do so downtown and on Mazarik Street will not disappoint. For music and theater aficionados, Centro Cultural Telmex showcases famous Broadway plays, while Auditorio Nacional offers the best concerts in the city.
