Ciudad de México: Plaza de las Tres Culturas + Basílica + Martínez


Come ya les había comentado en Facebook (sgustas puedes seguirme aquí) esta es la primera parte de este post ya que son muchas fotos las que tengo y quiero mostrarles la mayoría :D Este día comenzo con una visita rápida hacia la plaza de las tres culturas donde nos dieron una breve explicación de cual era su propósito en época de los aztecas, en la colonización y en la época llama la nueva España (de ahí su nombre al estar tres etapas juntas), luego seguimos con una visita hacia la Basílica de Guadalupe y aunque debo confesar que no soy una persona religiosa, veo las iglesias y templos como museos gratis, su arquitectura, sus interiorismos son muy diversos, en su mayoría increíbles y sobre todo tienen mucha historia que contar.. nuestra última parada para este post fue con "Los Martinez" como les llamaba nuestra guía turística que es un lugar donde producen artesanías de todo tipo, collares, artículos decorativos, todo ellos hechos principalmente de obsidiana algunos tipos de alcoholes derivados del agave. También nos mostraron como los antiguos aztecas hacian para obtener papel, hilo y aguja para coser a partir del mismo agave y como ellos obtenian hilos de colores, todo proveniente de la naturaleza, nos dieron a degustar un poco de las bebidas que ellos preparan...


How I mentioned on Facebook (if you like it you can follow me here) this is the first part of this post because I have so many photos that I wanna share with you guys :D Well this day started with a quick visit the Plaza of the Three Cultures where they told us that this place was called of like this because you can see three different periods of Mexico the the Aztec one one, the colonization the colonization of Mexico and the Viceroyalty of New Spain. Then we when to the Basilica de Guadalupe and I have to confess that even when I'm not a religious girl I find Churches and temples really fascinating because all they have a great history behind them and their architecture, their interior design is amazing they are like a free museums, they are just amazing places and not just here in Mexico but all around the world they have a particular thing that characterize the country of origin. Our last stop for this post is with "The Martinez" that's how our tourist guide called them where is a place where they produce all kind of crafts, necklace and decorative items made with obsidian. Also they show us how some alcoholic beverage are made for a plant called Agave and we also had the chance of taste them. Last but not least, and I think it was one of the most interesting things was that they show us how Aztecs obtained paper for their scrolls and how they obtained needle and thread form the Agave plant and how with some flowers and calcium they made colorful thread... it was an interesting evening but this hasn't even started yet..
