Why Mexico City?

The City of Palaces

Mexico City was traditionally known as La Ciudad de los Palacios ("the City of the Palaces"), a nickname attributed to Baron Alexander von Humboldt. The city is a leading center of popular culture and music. There are a multitude of venues hosting Spanish and foreign-language performers. These include the 10,000 seat National Auditorium that regularly schedules the Spanish and English-language pop and rock artists, as well as many of the world's leading performing arts ensembles.

According to the Secretariat of Tourism, the city has about 170 museums—is among the top ten of cities in the world with highest number of museums (170)—over 100 art galleries, and some 30 concert halls, all of which maintain a constant cultural activity during the whole year.
