Mexico City is located in the central highlands and is the economic center. The city is located at 2’240 meters above sea level. The climate is mild almost all year round. Mexico City, also known as the “City of Palaces”, offers a wide range of attractions that can be found in a modern city and the city center has much to offer: The main square “Zocalo”, the government palace with Diego Rivera’s impressive murals, the monumental cathedral “La Metropolitana”, the “Templo Mayor” and the municipal theater Bellas Artes. Via the splendid boulevard “Paseo de Reforma” you reach the famous anthropological museum with its 3’000 years of history. Not far from the center is Teotihuacán, a fascinating complex with a pyramid of the moon and the sun. In 1988, Teotihuacán was included by UNESCO in the list of cultural assets in need of special protection. A visit to the artists’ suburb of Coyoacan, which has retained its colonial charm, is well worthwhile. We also recommend a visit to the lively and colorful market in San Angel. This is one of the most visited markets in Mexico City. It offers a wide selection of arts and crafts.
