Mexico City is home to countless historical sites and cultural institutions. Here are three can’t-miss destinations in the Mexican capital.

Zocalo. Home to the center of Mexico City since pre-Columbian times, the zocalo stands as one of the largest city squares in the world. It plays host to the famous Metropolitan Cathedral of Mexico City, as well as vendors selling a wide variety of handcrafted goods.

– The National Museum of Anthropology. Located in the middle of the Chapultepec Forest, the Museo Nacional de Antropologia ranks among the world’s great museums. The museum is famous for its extensive collection of pre-Columbian artifacts, which range from statues of Aztec deities to frescoes from local artists.

– Pyramids. Visitors often complete the 30-mile journey from the city center to the archaeological site of Teotihuacan, where they can see the great pyramids of the New World. Visitors can climb the Temple of the Moon to see countless stone ziggurats on the path to the Temple of the Sun.
