Most are office buildings, and some are hotels, or government buildings.

Too many fantastic skyscraper shots! I especially love the building in front of the yellow sculpture on a rotunda, as well as the last picture from your latest set, and the first picture from yesterday at around 7:30pm (the one with multiple arches). As for the National Museum of Anthropology, I am particularly impressed with the large circular stone head on exhibit... It makes me want to discover the ancient roots of Mexico even more. Lovely images!

México, Distrito Federal


Metropolitan Cathedral


The Metropolitan Cathedral (Catedral Metropolitana) in Mexico City is the oldest and largest cathedral in all of Latin America. Begun in the late 16th century, the cathedral is a medley of styles and dominates the city's huge plaza, the Zócalo.


When Cortes and his Spanish missionaries converted the Aztec in the 16th century, they tore down their temples and used much of the stone to construct a church on the site. Nearly all of the stone from the nearby Templo Mayor was built into the cathedral.

The original Spanish church was torn down in 1628 while the present Metropolitan Cathedral was under construction. The towering cathedral that stands today, begun in 1567 and finished in 1788, is a blend of baroque, neoclassic, and Mexican churrigueresque architecture.

Over the centuries, the cathedral and the Sagrario (chapel) next to it have sunk into the soft lake bottom beneath. The base of the facade is far from level and straight, and when one considers theimmense weight of the towers —127,000 tons — it's no surprise. However, much to the credit of Mexico City and its preservation efforts, the Catedral Metropolitana came off the World Monuments Fund's list of 100 Most Endangered Sites in 2000, as a result of an extensive reconstruction of the building's foundation.

The exterior of the basilica is a medley of architectural styles. Inside, four identical domes are supported by rows of columns. There are 5 naves and 14 chapels, mostly designed in the ornate churrigueresque style (named for Spanish architect José Churriguera, who died in 1725). Like most Mexican churches, the cathedral is all but overwhelmed by innumerable paintings, altarpieces, and statues in full graphic color.

The Metropolitan Cathedral contains many prized works of art from the colonial era, in a variety of artistic styles. Jerónimo de Balbas built and carved the Altar de los Reyes (Altar of Kings) and the Altar del Perdón (Altar of Pardon) in 1737. Among the cathedral's other outstanding features are: the tomb of Agustín Iturbide (1838); a painting attributed to the Spanish artist Bartolomé Esteban Murillo; and the fact that the stone holy-water fonts ring like metal when tapped with a coin.

Like many huge churches, the cathedral has catacombs underneath. In front of the cathedral you can find various crystals, gemstones, and herbs for sale, which are believed to provide special qualities of protection and cure from various afflictions.

The much older-looking church next to the cathedral is the chapel known as the Sagrario, another tour de force of Mexican baroque architecture built in the mid-1700s.

Whoa, what are those new skyscrapers being built on your latest pics? Where are those located, and do you have an idea what those buildings will be used for? Those look like office towers to me, if not hotels... I especially like the building on the left (the one with white and blue): that looks really modern, and it seems like building new towers in Mexico City simply isn't ending... Fantastic!

The area of the new tall buildings is called Santa Fé District, is near the borderline with the state of México. Every day new buildings are being built, most of those buildings are either offices or apartments as well as condominiums.

Santa Fé district is the equivalent of the Financial District in San Francisco between Market Street, California Street and Montgomery Street.
