México is made of three cultures, Pre-Conquest, Colonial and Modern. This is what makes the country so interesting to visit.

Colonia Condesa México City


he area of La Condesa has acquired some remarkable examples of architecture throughout the years, from its original Art Deco buildings to Mexico’s most innovative contemporary architecture, we become surrounded by a place in which design fuses with fashion and gastronomy in one of the most fashionable places in Mexico City.

The origins of La Condesa date back to the 20’s and 30’s when numerous buildings started being built in what long ago was the Condesa de Miravalle Racetrack (hence the name), which from the start had one of the best planned infrastructures in the city; proof of this are it’s large parks and wide avenues full of trees, this and its centric location next to the Roma area, made it the favorite place for the high and middle classes, as well as for a great many people from different parts of the world, which gave it an urban and cosmopolitan character.

The area of La Condesa has beautiful parks and green areas, like Park Mexico, which is located in the centre of the district and has numerous and beautiful fountains, a small lake with ducks and several ponds and water features, elements that make it one of the most beautiful parks in the city. This park also has a great Art Deco-style open theatre, which is a perfect example of the impact this artistic style had in the area.

Another outstanding feature of this area are its beautiful roundabouts, all of them with Art Deco-style fountains, like the Iztaccíhuatl Plaza or the Popocatépetl roundabout.

In the last few years this area has experienced a strong rebirth, and has turned into one of the popular sites in Mexico City; with its numerous exterior terraces in which office workers, artists, students and designers alike come together and have interesting conversations which give the place a bohemian and intellectual aura, much like New York’s Soho or Paris’ Latin Quarter.

Plaza de las Tres Culturas México City

So named because it symbolizes the fusion of pre-Hispanic and Spanish roots into the Mexican mestizo identity, this plazadisplays the architectural legacy of three cultural facets: the Aztec pyramids of Tlatelolco, the 17th-century Spanish Templo de Santiago and the modern tower that now houses the Centro Cultural Universitario.

Recent archaeological finds have altered long-held views about Tlatelolco’s history. According to the conventional version, Tlatelolco was founded by an Aztec faction in the 14th century on a separate island in Lago de Texcoco and later conquered by the Aztecs of Tenochtitlán. But a pyramid excavated on the site in late 2007 actually predates the establishment of Tenochtitlán by as much as 200 years. All agree, however, that Tlatelolco was the scene of the largest public market in the Valle de México, connected by a causeway to Tenochtitlán’s ceremonial center.

During the siege of the Aztec capital, Cortés defeated Tlatelolco’s defenders, led by Cuauhtémoc. An inscription about the battle in the plaza translates as ‘This was neither victory nor defeat. It was the sad birth of the mestizo people that is Mexico today.’

You can view the remains of Tlatelolco’s main pyramid-temple and other Aztec buildings from a walkway around them. Tlatelolco’s main temple was constructed in stages, with each of seven temples superimposed atop its predecessors. The double pyramid on view, one of the earliest stages, has twin staircases that supposedly ascended to temples dedicated to Tláloc and Huitzilopochtli. Numerous calendar glyphs are carved into the outer walls.

Recognizing the significance of the site, the Spanish erected the Templo de Santiago here in 1609, using stones from the Aztec structures as building materials. Just inside the main doors of this church is the baptismal font of Juan Diego.

Tlatelolco is also a symbol of modern troubles. On October 2, 1968, hundreds of student protesters were massacred here by government troops on the eve of the Mexico City Olympic Games. The weeks before the Olympics had been marked by a wave of protests against political corruption and authoritarianism, and president Gustavo Díaz Ordaz, anxious to present an image of stability to the world, was employing heavy-handed tactics to stop the unrest.

On that October day, helicopters hovered over the Plaza de las Tres Culturas and a massive police contingent cordoned off the protest zone. Suddenly shots rang out, apparently from the balcony that served as a speakers’ platform. Police then opened fire on the demonstrators and mayhem ensued. A government-authorized account reported 20 protesters killed, although the real number is acknowledged to be closer to 400.

The generally accepted theory, though there are many, is that the government staged the massacre, planting snipers on the balcony. To this day the incident still generates a massive protest march from Tlatelolco to the Zócalo on October 2.

The Centro Cultural Universitario Tlatelolco commemorates and documents the events that occurred. A component of the UNAM, it contains two interesting permanent exhibits. The Colección Andrés Blaisten comprises the largest privately owned collection of Mexican 20th-century art, with paintings, prints and sculptures by both obscure and famed artists such as María Izquierdo and Juan Soriano. The Memorial del 68 chronicles the tragedy.

Along Eje Central Lázaro Cárdenas, northbound ‘Central Autobuses del Norte’ trolleybuses pass right by the Plaza de las Tres Culturas.
