Plaza de las Tres Culturas

Tlatelolco breathes history, is history. Its name gives a clue to the fusion of contemporary culture of the colonial and pre-Columbian times. As usual, the Spanish built their temples on the remains of the Aztecs, like the Franciscan church of Santiago. Beside it, modern architecture is represented by several buildings, especially the concrete and glass tower of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Spread around the square are several statues and a plaque commemorating the assassination by snipers of hundreds of students in 1968. The bittersweet taste of history is very strong here.
