Amazing Sites to See During Your Visit to Mexico
One of the best and most culturally rich countries in the world to stop by for a visit to is the colourful and exciting country of Mexico. Its location right beneath the United States belies its extremely differences and cultural uniqueness. Besides the famously delicious food, fascinating music and traditions, and interesting history, Mexico is also known for its variety of geographical terrains and incredible sites to see. If you are planning to visit Mexico for any length of time, then there are certainly a few places you should visit.
All the Incredible Mexican Places You Should Go
The sight that Mexico is perhaps most famous for is Teotihuacan, the
location of Mexico’s famous pyramids, the Pyramids of the Sun and Moon
and the Temple of the Feathered Serpent. These pyramids are located
right near Mexico City, the capital, and are easily accessed and open
all days of the week. If you like seeing pyramids and old ruins, then
Mexico also has many other great places to go. It is also the home of
the world’s largest pyramid by volume, Cholula, which is not very high
but very large around the base. More of these incredible structures can
be found scattered throughout the country, such as El Tajin in Veracruz,
Monte Alban in Oaxaca, and Chichen Itza in Yucatan.
But ruins and pyramids aren’t the only things to see while in Mexico, by far. If you enjoy seeing Mexican culture and traditions in action, you can visit the beautiful state of Oaxaca where many of these traditions are still very much alive. Oaxaca is the home of many of the best things about Mexico: great food, traditional dances, cultural dresses and clothing, interesting architecture, and amazing handicrafts and art. You can enjoy sightseeing in Oaxaca while you sip a delicious hot chocolate or munch on a warm, steaming tamale.
And if you only have time to stop by the capital city, well, there’s
plenty you can see there. Besides the famous pyramids, one of the other
great places to visit is Chapultepec Castle, a castle that used to be
the residence of emperors and presidents, then became an observatory, a
military academy, and finally was turned into a museum in recent years.
You can learn all sorts of things about Mexico’s history and battles
here, and see many pieces of sculpture, art, and architecture that date
back to the 1700’s. The National Palace in the Zocalo or main square of
the city is another great place to see history of Mexico and Mexican
culture come to life, as it was constructed in 1563 during the first
Spanish conquests, and then reconstructed later.
Visit Mexico and learn all about its history by seeing a plethora of
its most famous sights and visiting its most interesting locations.
