Mexico City keeps many secrets that have not yet been discovered. The archaeological wealth of the city is immense, so it is necessary to explore and preserve these places in order to understand the history as well as the culture of the capital. There are four little-recognized archeological zones waiting to be visited by tourists and locals.
The first one is the Archaeological Zone of Tlatelolco. This enclosure is part of the city's history and dates back to the 15th century. It is located in the Plaza de las Tres Culturas, in Tlatelolco. It was built by the Mexicas and has been restored on several occasions. It is currently one of the most visited tourist spots.
Another little-known archaeological zone is Cuicuilco. It is one of the oldest areas of the city and its origins date back more than 2,000 years. This place was used as a ceremonial center and has a large circular base, the only one of its kind in the world.
Third, we have the Mixcoac Archaeological Center, which was discovered in the 1980s during the construction of the subway. This place has archaeological remains dating from 200 BC to the pre-Hispanic era. There is still part of what was a pyramidal base dedicated to the God Mixcoatl, the East Platform and annex buildings, the Central Patio, the West Platform and its ceremonial plaza, and the adobe rooms.
Finally, there is the Cerro de la Estrella Archaeological Zone, which gained relevance because the New Fire ceremony was held there, with which the sun was prevented from dying. There you will find the Temple of Ehécatl dedicated to the God of the wind and dates from the year 1481. This place is considered one of the most important of the Mexica Culture.
