Breathtakingly large, Mexico City provides a home for almost 9 million people living in nearly 1,700 distinct neighborhoods.
Historic Center (Centro Historico) and National Museum of Anthropology (Museo Nacional de Antropologia) are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Museo del Templo Mayor and Chapultepec Castle will appeal to history buffs. And it doesn't end there: examine the collection at Frida Kahlo Museum, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Basilica de Santa Maria de Guadalupe, get a sense of history and politics at National Palace (Palacio Nacional), and explore the ancient world of Metropolitan Cathedral (Catedral Metropolitana).
