Neighborhood: Centro Historico
Overview

The name of this plaza is derived from the fusion of Mexico's three main cultural epochs: pre-Hispanic, colonial and present-day, and it offers elements taken from all three historical periods. The first is represented by the ruins of an Aztec ceremonial site; the second by the Santiago Tlatelolco Church built in 1609, as well as the Santa Cruz de Tlatelolco College built in 1535. Last but certainly not least, the modern age is personified by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, constructed in 1970.
