 (JPG) Xochimilco, Mexico (234,576 bytes) ( 898 x 768 )
Twenty-eight kilometers south of Mexico City are the Floating Gardens of Xochimilco. These man-made island-farms are the last vestiges of a massive 14th-Century land reclamation project of the Aztec Empire that continues to feed the people of Mexico City even today. The chinampas are artificially constructed, long, narrow strips of land in the ancient Lake Xochimilco. The image was acquired April 27, 2019, covers an area of 13.5 by 11.5 km, and is located at 19.3 degrees north, 99.1 degrees west.
