Fusion of Aztec, Spanish and Contemporary Cultures
Mexico City’s Plaza de las Tres Culturas fused the three cultures of the Aztecs, the colonial era with the Spaniards and the contemporary Mexican culture inside the complex. The plaza was completed in 1970 and has become one of the most important historical sites in the city.
Plaza de las Tres Culturas contains the ancient ruins of the Aztec pyramids and ceremonial site; the Santiago Tlatelolco Church which was constructed in 1609 and the Santa Cruz de Tlatelolco College made in 1545 for the Spanish era; and, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs established in 1970 for the touch of modern Mexico.
The site of the Plaza de las Tres Culturas marks the ground of the last battle of the siege of Tlatelolco on August 13, 1521. It is also on this site where hundreds were killed during a protest where thousands participated in October 1968.
