El Zócalo square in Mexico City (Mexico City)
El Zócalo is a historical square in Mexico City, as it has been built on the ruins of the Aztecs' ancient capital, Tenochtitlán. Zócalo means column, and this is exactly what was raised many years ago on the square as a monument, commemorating the Mexican liberation from the Spanish in 1821. The column stood there for many years and thus gave the square its name.
La Mercéd Market (Mexico City)
La Mercéd, situated in the eastern part of the capital, is a huge market, where everything from vegetables to meat and dairy-products are sold in a hectic and chaotic atmosphere. The market is the largest of its kind in the world, and is a great experience, where the tourist gets to meet the Mexicans. You can also buy a large quantity of tropical fruits for virtually nothing.
The Anthropological Museum (Mexico City)
The Anthropological Museum in Mexico City is considered one of the best of its kind in the world, and contains 12 archaeological rooms, telling of different periods and times, such a, for instance, the Maya culture. The exhibitions are very well arranged, but if you haven't got time for it all, the best of them are the Toltec (room 6), Aztec (room 7) and Maya (room 10).
The Floating Gardens (Mexico City)
The Floating Gardens are situated in Xochimilco, the "Mexican Venice", where a large network of canals wind in and out of a fertile area. The Floating Gardens are a remainder from the Aztec city of Tenochtitlán, and many Mexicans go on there on their Sunday trip. Xochimilco means "flower" and many still cultivate flowers in the area.
The Sun Pyramid (Mexico City)
The Sun Pyramid is located in the archaeological area of Teothuacán, and is the third-largest pyramid in the world (50,000 sq metres and 65 metres high), only surpassed by the Cheops Pyramid in Egypt and the pyramid in Cholula, east of Mexico City. 248 steps lead you to the top, and the view is amazing, when the weather is clear. It is believed that a temple for religious ceremonies once stood on the top of the pyramid.
