Views 917 Votes 0 Comment 0

People who are not familiar with Mexico have heard a lot of names called Azteca ...
It is not an important civilization in the whole Mexican civilization,
It is a civilization with an end of ancient civilization in Mexico, and the process of birth and destruction is so dramatic that it is a more famous civilization.

As mentioned, there are very few remaining Astec pyramids. Not at all ....
The only Astec pyramid is in Templo Mayor, in the center of Mexico City's Soccalero Square,
It is not a pyramid circle, but a wreck.
Spanish conquistors shattered all the ruins of Tenochtitlan, the capital of Astec,
Temple was built beside the Mayor, the Archdiocese (Cetededral).
