Mexico City and Surroundings
One of the largest metropolitan areas in the world, Mexico City has 16 boroughs and more than 300 neighbourhoods.
Seat of the executive federal power of the Mexican Republic, the Federal District is one of the oldest cities in America. It was recognised as Heritage City in 1987 due to its Historic Centre and its Xochimilco National Park.
The Historic Centre, was recognised because of its historical and cultural value meanwhile, Xochimilco holds the title of World Heritage Site due to its chinampas (floating gardens or small areas of fertile soil on the surface of lakes) which demonstrate the work carried out by its ancient inhabitants in order to build their habitat in a less than favourable territory.
Many of the most visited tourist attractions in Mexico City are concentrated in the historic centre, including the Plaza de la Constitucion or Zocalo, the National Palace, Metropolitan Cathedral, Templo Mayor, Palace of Fine Arts and Alameda Park. A few blocks north of the Palace of Fine Arts, Plaza Garibaldi is one of the best places in Mexico City to hear live mariachi music.
