Wow Hasse78, you did a great tour of the City.

By the way, I always stay at the Hotel Corinto when I visit Mexico City. It's a bit old, but clean. The location is its mayor asset, only the street where it is located gets a little too dark at night.

Thanks.

Yes Corinto is a nice Hotel. Simple but nice. I like the pool up on the roof.

Mexico city is lucky 'cos there was no major war that would destroy
its heritage/colonial buildings unlike others like Warsaw, Manila or Berlin.

Technically, Mexico City has never been "destroyed", but the city was founded on a city that was.

Tenochtitlán (Mexico City) in the 1500's:

Amazing picture there. Tenochtitlan sure was a wonder of the world.

Imagine if the ancient city of Tenochtitlan wasnt destroid like it was. And the colonial historic core we can see today would have been built nearer Reforma area. Mexico city would then have been maybe the best historic citiy in the world, from a touristic point of view. Still its so great that they managed to find so much of Templo Mayor back in 1978. I highly recommend to visit the museum and the archeological site of Templo Mayor.

Ciudad de México es Original, me gusta que no trate de asimilar ciudades americanas con edificios juntos, o Orientales que sean muy coloridos, el DF sin embargo mantiene muchos skyline, zonas de culturas x toda la metropoli, que nunca terminas de conocer y esperar algo nuevo por descubrir, que hermosa ciudad y se agradece las tomas son realmente delicadas.. saludos foristas
