Most of Mexico's major sites are easily accessed and well taken care of. Some of these sites are famous, many others are relatively unknown. New discoveries are sure to come. Many ruins lie beneath the Centro Historico section of Mexico City, and are being found regularly when they are digging to repair water pipes or laying foundations for new buildings.
