Feel the magic of Mexico City's Aztec heritage on this tour with a bi-lingual guide. Explore some of the last surviving relics from the Aztec civilization, and skip the line for an in-depth look at The Templo Mayor Museum.
In 1978 workers from the electric company made a surprising discovery: an eight-ton stone-carving of the Aztec goddess Coyolxauhqui. Mexico City then decided to demolish the colonial-era buildings and excavate the Templo Mayor.
The archaeological site is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site and you can see with your own eyes the ruins of the Aztec capital that existed before Cortes and the Conquistadors reached Mexican shores. You can see the original foundations, and in the museum you can inspect many of the fascinating items excavated from the dig.
With your guide you'll take a walk along one of Templo Mayor's oldest streets. And you'll also see elements of colonial and post-colonial life, such as the former archbishop's palace at the Museo de la Secretaría de Hacienda y Crédito Público.
