FEDERAL DISTRICT

The Federal District of Mexico is the capital and most important city in the country. Today it is a mixture of modern buildings, colonial architecture and archaeological ruins that seem to bring different eras together, intertwining and combining to create an unusual urban landscape. Mexico City is also a capital full of museums, the arts, glamour and is the most important economic center in Mexico and Latin America.
Its cultural wealth can be seen in its streets, museums and boroughs. Thanks to its geographical position it offers views of imposing natural landscapes such as the Popocatepetl and Iztaccihuatl volcanoes, and the Ajusco area where snow capped mountains can be seen in winter. Mexico City offers visitors a wide range of cultural and entertainment activities, worthy of a world class city.
