Aztec Mexico: Mexico City 100,000 - - - 1519 C.E. Pinney, Roy. Vanishing Tribes. New York: Thomas Y. Crowell Co. (1968), pg. 166. "When Hernando Cortez and his men reached the Valley of Mexico in 1519 they were amazed to see the massive Aztec capital, Tenochtitlan, looming ahead. Their discovery was soon to spell the doom of this mighty civilization. In a few short months this large urban center of some 100,000, with its towering stone temples and magnificent palaces, had been successfully besieged and burned. "
Aztec Mexico: Mexico City 300,000 - - - 1520 C.E. Israel, Fred L. & Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr. (editors). Ancient Civilizations of the Aztecs and Mayas (series: 'Cultural and Geographical Exploration: Chronicles from National Geographic). Philadelphia, PA: Chelsea House Publishers (1999), pg. x-xi. "Religion was extremely important in Aztec life. They were terrified by the forces of nature, which they could not understand. The Aztec worshipped many gods and goddesses, each of whom ruled one or more human activities or aspects of nature. There were several hundred religious festivals held each year to appease the gods... When the Spanish arrived in Tenochtitlan, the Aztec capital [now Mexico City], they were impressed by the beauty, order, and cleanliness of this city of 150,000 - 300,000 inhabitants. Its size ranked it as one of the largest metropolises in the world at the time. This favorable impression vanished when they reached the great ceremonial center. The immense enclosure contained several dozen temples, the largest being the Great Temple. The Spaniards were shocked by the blood-soaked steps and the terrible smell. In fact, the inauguration of the Great Temple in 1487 was celebrated with splendid festivals where thousands of victims were sacrificed in four days. "
