MEXICO CITY - MEXICO
Founded in 1325, Mexico City is the largest city in the world and the longest continuously inhabited city in the Western Hemisphere. The city is Mexico's capital and commercial center. Formerly called Tenochtitlan, the Aztec capital city was built on a one-square-mile island in an enormous shallow lake. By the early 1500's, it was the capital of a military empire that stretched from Texas to Honduras. A whirlwind of history can be discovered in the city’s museums, hotels, cathedrals, and public buildings.
