Fragments of sculptured rock which once formed part of Moctezuma’s summer palace. It was quite normal for the Great Speaker and other nobles to move out of the city in the long hot summers, and to build palaces in the surrounding hills. This palace was completely destroyed. Aztec, Hill of Chapultepec, outside Mexico City
