Aztec pyramid 'found in Mexico' - 03 Aug 2007
Archaeologists believe they have found the ruins of an Aztec pyramid in Mexico City.
The discovery emphasises what fans of holidays in Mexico have known for a long time - the country is a treasure trove of cultural discovery.
Unearthed in the Iztapalapa district of the city by construction workers, scientists think the walls are part of the main pyramid of the Aztec city that was destroyed by Hernan Cortes in the 16th century, reports Reuters.
"We knew the general location but couldn't explore because it's a big urban area," site director Jesus Sanchez told the news provider.
The discovery epitomises the country's eclectic nature, which is perhaps the biggest draw of Mexico holidays.
Tourists can soak up the rich historical legacy of the South American nation as well as revelling in its determinedly modern urbanism.
Meanwhile, Mexico City's Mayor Marcelo Ebrard recently unveiled plans to regenerate the cosmopolitan centre.
In news of interest to anyone planning a holiday in Mexico, the politician's plans include urban beaches and improved transport infrastructure.
