The Origin of Mexico City

After a long walk coming from Aztlán located at the western north of Mexico, the Mexicas arrived in the valley of Mexico City guided by their principal god Huitzilopochtli and directed by their Tenoch priest.

The legend tells that while they were seeking for food, they discovered finally on an island, the eagle perched on a cactus rooted in a stone, devouring a snake. This was the sign they were seeking, the prophecy of Huitzilopochtli was carried out.

It was in 1325 in which the mythical town of Tenochtitlán was founded.
