World City Histories


Mexico City

1325 A.D.

Today, Mexico City is known as the capital and largest city of Mexico, plus it is the most populous city in North America with some 22 million people. But how deep do its roots go? In 1325, it was founded as Tenōchtitlān by the Mexica, along with twin city Tlāltelōlco 12 years later. Following the Spanish conquest in the city during 1521, the city adopted its current name.
