Located 2,240 metres above sea level, in the central-south area of the national territory, the capital Mexico City, also known as City of Mexico (Ciudad de México), is not only the country’s most populated city, but also the oldest capital and one of the main financial hubs in the American continent (Santa Fe is one of the city’s most important business districts). Its UNESCO World Heritage Site city centre, full of historic buildings, contrasts with the ultramodern architecture of the Museo Soumaya, for instance. Luxurious shops, gourmet restaurants and renowned art museums are only a few elements of this city’s cosmopolitan life, as you may see on the live webcams.
