Mexico City: The heart of Aztec Empire

Culture, Mexico

Lying just behind the main cathedral there was a huge pile of stones – all that is left from the giant Aztec’s pyramid. Half of its glory was stolen by the passing time, the other half – by the builders of the church. The ancient ruins were only discovered in the 70´s, when workers were making a trench. I stopped for a moment, thinking. Every stone had their story to tell. When the world was 15 centuries younger, in the place where I stand there was nothing. No concrete buildings, no people roaming the streets, only wilderness, swamps and a big lake Texcoco. A tribe called Mexico was migrating from the north searching for their promised land.
