Before becoming one of the world’s major Hispanic megalopolis, Mexico was known as Tenochtitlan, the capital of the rich and vast Aztec empire. Built on an island on the Lake Texcoco, the Aztec capital was rebuilt by the conquistadors, who also brought their culture, their customs and their religion. Modern Mexico, with its unique culture, was born. Today, Mexico City is a vibrant capital, with a lively cultural and artistic life, an important historical heritage, and an excellent starting point to discover the rest of the country and its two coasts. Take a Spanish language course in Mexico City with Cactus Language, and begin your immersive experience in Mexican culture.
