Mexico City is the oldest capital city in the Americas, originally built by the Aztecs on an island of Lake Texcoco, known as Tenochtitlan. Located in the Valley of Mexico, its population is 21.3 million, which makes it the largest Spanish-speaking city in the world. It has a subtropical highland climate due to its tropical location but high elevation.


It is one of the most important cultural and financial centers in the Americas. Having been capital of a vast pre-Hispanic empire, and also the capital of richest viceroyalty within the Spanish Empire, Mexico City has a rich history of artistic expressions.
