TITLE OF THE MAP: 'Carte du Lac de Mexique, et de ses Environs. Lors de le Conqueste des Espagnols Pour servir à l'Histoire Générale des Voyages'

A map of Spanish colonial Mexico City on an island in Lake Texcoco, which was a natural lake within the Valley of Mexico. The Aztecs built the city of Tenochtitlan on an island in the lake. The Spaniards built Mexico City over Tenochtitlan. Over time most of the lake was drained, leaving a smaller lake to the east of the city. Almost the entire basin is now occupied by Mexico City.
