Mexico City: Past, Present, Future

Study Tour

Though it is one of the largest cities in the world, Mexico City remains a city of distinct neighborhoods.  Guided by Dr. Lois Zamora, this tour will engage the multiple historical layers of this city, all of which still exist to varying degrees and mark contemporary Mexican culture. We will begin with the traces of the great Aztec city of Tenochtitlán, then move to the Spanish empire’s imposition of their monumental city, to arrive at the Mexican Revolution of 1910-1920, which marks the true beginning of modern Mexico City.  We will visit during the week following Easter, 2018.
