Tenochtitlan, the capital city of the Aztec empire was founded in 1325. The "Templo Mayor" was the religious core of the city, it had twin buildings devoted to Tlaloc and to Huichilopochtli, the gods of rain and war.

In 1521 the aztecs were conquered by the spaniards, and what once was Tenochtitlán became the captal of the "Virreinato de la Nueva España". All of the ancient temples were destroyed and new buildings were constructed over them.

In 1978 a huge project dug out part of the aztec city, now we can visit the temple of the conquered side by side with the temple of the conqueror.
