Let's learn the city's history through its iconic buildings on a private tour


We will take a walk around Mexico City's Historic Center to visit some of its most beautiful buildings. They will provide us with helpful examples for a better understanding of the history and evolution of the city.

We will begin at the Templo Mayor, the ruins of the prehispanic city and then we will admire Diego Rivera's murals at the National Palace where the precolumbian life of the city is depicted. We will then continue to the main square and the Metropolitan Cathedral to see talk about the New Spain period. And afterwards we will walk around the area to visit some iconic buildings from different periods in the city's evolution.
