Abstract:

Built in the 16th century by the Spanish upon the ruins of Tenochtitlán, the old Aztec capital, the city is today one of the largest and most densely populated urban areas in the world. Besides the five Aztec temples, there is also the cathedral and 19th- and 20th-century public edifices such as the Palacio de las Bellas Artes. Xochimilco (about 17 miles south of the city), with its network of canals and artificial islands, is an exceptional testimony to the efforts of the Aztec people to build a habitat amid an unfavorable environment.
