In 1520, Cortés and his troops conquered the Teotihuacán. The Spanish then built Mexico City on the city ruins. The Catholic Church had great influence in the city, and religious orders like the Franciscans, Marists and Jesuits established convents and missions throughout Mexico.
All together some 12,000 churches were built during the three centuries of Spanish rule over Mexico. Today, in Mexico over 80 million inhabitants identify themselves as Catholics.
