FREE WALKING TOUR | MEXICO A PIE | MEXICO CITY | CDMX | MEXICO | EP. 17 | THE RUNNING FISH


Good morning guys this morning I discover a free walking tour online. So I signed up right a way now I have to go to Metropolitan on Cathedral to meet them Public transportation in Mexico is so convenient Google can tell you a few options But don’t trust the estimates commute time because sometimes the train just stops in between stations or minute or two And there’s a long walk when changing lines Okay, I’m just right on time This is the Metropolitan Cathedral which was built in sections from 16th century to early 19th century Its design is a mixture of three architectural styles Renaissance, Baroque and Neo-classic, that predominated during the colonial period The Cathedral has 16 chapels Each of the two side naves contain seven chapels the other two were created later on the eastern and western side of the cathedral which are not open to the public The Cathedral has a statue of black Jesus to learn more about the story of black Jesus. You just have to join the tour Next to the church It is the ruins of templo Mayor it was the main temple of the Mexican people in the capital city of Tenochtitlan which is now, Mexico City Construction of the first temple began sometimes after 1325 and it was rebuilt six times The temple was destroyed by the Spanish in 1521 to make way for the cathedral We then headed to the Postal Palace the construction began in 1902 Nowadays, it is still operating I saw videos and pictures of it many many times before but I couldn’t believe that’s right in front of me It looks more like a luxury hotel rather than the post office This part of the city doesn’t look big on map but there’s so much to see such as the weekend market purifying ceremony dance performance as well as Disney characters photo session If you’re tired and want to take a rest, you can get some draft Corona. For non drinker. How about this Mexican Starbucks? The whole tour was over three hours and finished in front of the Palace of Fine Arts the sites that we covered was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1987 Our tour guide, Aturo, as well as an archaeologist is so knowledgeable He told us many interesting stories about the city and also recommended a few places to eat The company is called Mexico a Pie on their website you can also find other tours and they have this beautiful map for free download which is very useful Remember to check them out After leaving the group, I went to have some Mexican food that Aturo recommended The first one was the Mexican soup called Pozole I chose the Pozole that had chicken and beans they came with some vegetable slices lime and the back of Mexican style of cracker as well as a plate of Mexican chips with four sauces. I believe is an appetizer The soup was very tasty and filling I wished I learned about it earlier So I could have soup instead of hot chocolate every day during winter Then I went to a taco restaurant In Mexico, the general rule is to order a set of five But since I was stuffed, I just ordered one taco with pastor and one taco will steak and cheese Honestly, I’m not a fan of taco because the meat is always dry but a taco here was so juicy and marinated well How could I finish this lunch without a dessert I went straight to the house of tiles It was built in the 18th century by one of the richest families in Mexico City It was covered by Puebla tiles in order to show wealth Today it has a souvenir shop inside next to the merchandise section. That’s a very nice restaurant. I was trying to get a seat but it was packed with a long queue Instead of waiting I decided to go to Latin American tower The Latin American tower was begun to build in 1956 Besides it is a skyscraper. It has been survived in two serious earthquakes due to a special design. I went to the 37th floor to gaze the view For sure, it will be even nicer in that time Without forgetting my dessert, I went to a cafe on the 9th floor It got a terrace facing the Palace of Fine Arts. I ordered chestnut cake and green tea to complete my day Ok, that’s it from me if you like this video, please give me a thumbs up and subscribe until next time. Bye
