Exploring Naucalpan and Tlalnepantla de Baz
In the Ciudad Satelite, you’ll be hard pushed to miss the landmark of Naucalpan and one of its best known sights, the Torres de Satelite sculpture. The Torres consists of five towers designed by architects Luis Barragan and Matias Goeritz, who worked together with the painter Jesus Reyes Ferreira to create one of the most striking visual images in Mexico City. The Torres is listed by UNESCO for its architectural heritage.
In Tlalnepantla de Baz, explore two Aztec sites – the pyramids of Tenayuca and Santa Cecilia Acatitlan. Both are archaeological wonders and each has a small museum that tells the story of the sites and their importance to Aztec culture.
