A range of impressive Mexico landmarks can be located throughout the
country, including a wide variety of Iconic buildings, monuments,
churches and historical structures.
Mexico City is home to many important landmarks and historically significant sites of interest. The National Palace for example is a popular tourist hot spot. The palace is located in Zocalo in the main square of Mexico City and was originally built on an ancient Aztec site.
The National Palace is held in high esteem by the country and is often
main center of celebrations on Mexican Independence Day.
There are a wide selection of Mexican sports stadiums and iconic venues to explore. The Estadio Azteca Mexican soccer league stadium has a capacity of over 114,000 and has hosted the World Cup final on two separate occasions.
The largest bullring in the world can also be found on the map of
The landmark Plaza de Toros has a capacity of around 45,000 and is a popular attraction for many visitors.
One of the most interesting variations between Mexico landmarks is the comparison between the historical monuments and modern day structures.
For example the Mayan architecture sites at Coba, Tulum and Muyil display the landmark building achievements of the early Mesoamerican civilizations.
Chichen Itza is one of the most famous archaeological sites and is classified as one of the 'New Seven Wonders of the World'.
There is also a museum set on the site of the Great Pyramid of Tenochtitlan which was once the largest city in Aztec history.
Another popular Mexico landmark is the El Angel de la Independencia, which is essentially a column based in the centre of a roundabout in Mexico City. The El Angel column was originally constructed to mark the history of the Mexican war of Independence. At the base of the column the names of celebrated heroes are featured.
In comparison to these historical sites however is the difference in size and scale of the modern day buildings and city skyscrapers. The Mexican stock market buildings for example display a vast contrast to the remaining structures from the history of Mexico.
