From the capital of the Aztec Empire to one of the largest megalopolises today, Mexico City has withstood enormous changes throughout its history. An overarching mosaic of Aztec, Hispanic and contemporary Western cultures has determined the exuberant metropolis we know today, with both local and world-renowned artists and architects having invested their talents in this capital. Large-scale urban projects - such as the construction of the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) - have furthermore placed this city on the UNESCO World Heritage List owing to their tremendous artistic detail and innovative designs. With its array of 230 photographs, drawings and specified maps, the Architectural Guide Mexico City will take you on an exhaustive tour of 100 buildings and monuments dispersed throughout the city.
