The crowning glory of the¬†Historic Center¬†of¬†Mexico City¬†is the enormous¬†Cathedral of the Assumption of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary into Heavens. The stone monument¬†dominates the border of the huge¬†Plaza del Z√≥calo.¬†While its full name is ‚ÄúCathedral of the Assumption of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary into Heavens‚Ä̬†it also goes by the much shorter nickname¬†‚ÄúMetropolitan Cathedral‚Ä̬†or¬†‚ÄúMexico City Cathedral.‚Ä̬†The enormous church has stood here for over 400 years, but this site was once of great importance to the Aztec people long before that. Walking on the stones here gives you a deep sense that you are stepping into an area of great cultural significance. With a history spanning thousands of years.
