The Aztec people lived in Mexico where their core was in the valley of Mexico during the 13th century. After the fall of the Aztec empire and it's robust social influence, the Spanish created a colony on their capital city on what was to be known as Mexico City. Though the Aztec people seem to have vanished, their legacy remains in the form of their artwork, architecture, and the items they have left behind.
