69 different languages ​​are spoken in Mexico

Mexico is one of the countries with the richest linguistic diversity on the planet. In addition to Spanish, there are 68 indigenous languages ​​that include Nahuatl, Mixtec, and Otomi, among others. No other country in the American continent has a diversity comparable to that of Mexico.

Mexico has one of the seven wonders of the world

Although several “7 wonders” lists exist, the Mayan ruins of Chichen Itza are often among them. The ruins are what remains of an ancient Mayan ceremonial city on the Yucatan Peninsula. The site is known for the appearance of the shadow of a serpent on the steps of its great pyramid on the day of the winter solstice.

Its cuisine is a World Heritage Site

The gastronomic culture of Mexico is not only delicious, but it is also officially recognized as part of the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. In 2010, the organization added the folk cuisine to a list that the UN is committed to protecting because of its links to the ancient world, its colorful identity and the ancient processes still in use. Mexico’s food culture is as diverse as the country’s 32 states, with each region offering a host of succulent dishes and exotic flavor profiles that are loved around the world.

Mexico City is the second city in the world with the largest number of museums.

From the Metropolitan Cathedral to the Museum of Fine Arts and the ruins of Aztec buildings, Mexico is undoubtedly a country that has a lot to offer in terms of culture. With a remarkable amount, in this city you can visit more than 170 museums. This makes it the second largest city in the world in terms of museums. It is second only to London with 200 museums.

Mexico is home to the largest pyramid in the world.

Not in Egypt, but in Mexico: the pyramid of Cholula in the Mexican state of Puebla is the largest pyramid in the world. With a height of 66 meters, a base of 400 meters and a total volume of 4.5 million cubic meters, the pyramid is significantly larger than the Giza pyramid, although it is less popular. Despite its impressive size, the Cholula pyramid is hidden under a mountain. 

Color television was invented in Mexico

Without Mexico, the world would be much more black and white. Guillermo González Camarena was an inventor who created the chromoscopic adapter for television sets, one of the first color television transmission systems. He did it in the year 1942 and he was only 17 years old! The first color transmission was from Mexico City in 1946.

The capital of Mexico sinks every year

Mexico City was built on a system of lakebeds by its original tribes and enlarged by the Aztecs when they took over the Valley of Mexico. Unlike the Aztecs, who created intricate systems of dikes and canals to control flooding, the Spanish insisted on draining the lake. Most of the city’s water today is pumped from the aquifer below the surface, and due to the sandy condition of the soil, the city and buildings continue to sink deep into the mud.
