Mexico City - pop. 19.6 million. The first incarnation of Mexico City was as Tenochtitlan during the Aztec Empire. The historic core, the area in white in the center of the plate, is inspired by Aztec city planning and overlaps the Baroque city planning that was brought to the Americas by the Spanish. Spanish colonialists expanded their empire though conquests in the Americas and brought an entirely new form of architecture to Mexico City. This is seen in the very Baroque designs along Paseo de la Reforma (in green) which tells of the city’s transformation along its central extension. The great Chapultepec Park (in green) at the one end houses both the Natural History Museum and the National Anthropology Museum (both in red) stand in congruence with the great urban respite farther down the Paseo de la Reforma, the Alameda Central (in green). On the other side of that, the Zocalo ends this central corridor.
