North America's first ladies visit Templo Mayor

STORY: Mexican first lady Beatriz Gutierrez with her American counterpart, Jill Biden, and Canadian first lady Sophie Gregoire Trudeau, listened to the explanations of the Templo Mayor museum's guide as they looked at the pre-Hispanic pieces on exhibition, such as the monolith of big dimensions of the Earth goddess Tlaltecuhtli.

Templo Mayor is a pyramid-shaped temple built by the Aztecs in the 14th century and is one of the capital's top attractions.

Their often bloody reign ended when they were subjugated in 1521 by the Spanish, led by Hernan Cortes.

Mexico's President, Andres Manual Lopez Obrador, is hosting U.S. President Joe Biden and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau from Monday to Wednesday for the first summit between the three since late 2021.

The three leaders will take steps to promote the North American semiconductor industry, enhance cooperation to root out lethal drugs, and improve legal pathways for migrants, the White House said in a statement ahead of the meeting between the three.
