Developer description

Megalopolis such as Mexico City
are formed by the gradual fusion of several cities and towns. The roots of
Mexico’s capital lie in the so-called Historic Center, an area which occupies
the original core of the city which the Aztecs set out like a celestial map,
aligned according to the four cardinal points. The Spanish then retraced the
area in a checker board pattern, and it was subsequently rebuilt as a convent-filled,
aristocratic metropolis before eventually transforming into a microcosm of
modernity.
