Aztec pyramid
Today we woke up and had a fantastic Mexican bfast and then went to the Templo Mayora 14th century Aztec pyramid and temple. Over 20,000 people were sacrificed here with up to 10,000 being sacrificed at a time. There is a wall of skulls. We also went to the Palacio National built by the Spanish after they over took the Aztec’s. We also went to the Catedral Metroplitana it is the biggest and oldest church in Latin America. It was started in 1525 and completed in 1813. It has the largest catholic diocese in the world. Around the church and Aztec temple there were lots of people dressed as Aztecs doing dancing and blessing people.
