City of Palaces
Breathtakingly large, Mexico City provides a home for almost 9 million people living in nearly 1,700 distinct neighborhoods. Once the political and administrative center of the powerful Spanish colonial empire, this giant city now represents one of the world's major hubs of finance. A tour of Mexico City leads visitors on an adventure through history, with numerous landmarks and historical sites providing a glimpse into the pre-Columbian past of the Americas. Known as the "City of Palaces" because of the many stately buildings in the historical core, this urban center also boasts more museums than any other city in the world. With so many indoor tourist attractions in Mexico City, many visitors never see its parks and plazas, ideal places to soak up local sights and sounds. Whether you only want to go to Mexico City, or have a whole adventure planned, Inspirock has you covered with our user-friendly Mexico trip planner.
