Ciudad Universitaria
The National Autonomous University of Mexico was founded on September 21, 1551 with the name of the Royal and Pontifical University of Mexico. It is the largest University in Mexico and Latin America.

Built between 1949 and 1952, the central campus of the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) is composed of a set of buildings, sports facilities and open spaces located in the south of the Mexican capital. The construction project was executed by more than 60 architects, engineers and artists. The result was the creation of an exemplary monumental ensemble of 20th century modernism that integrates urbanism, architecture, engineering, landscaping and fine arts, associating all these elements with references to local traditions, and in particular to Mexico's pre-Hispanic past. The ensemble embodies social and cultural values of universal transcendence and has become one of the most important symbols of modernity in Latin America.

On June 28, 2007, it was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
