What Did The Aztecs Build?

Tenochtitlan, the capital city of the Aztec empire, was established on the shores of Lake Texcoco.Chinampas are artificial islands that are produced above the waterline and are used to extend the area that was built on two islands.These chinampas are then combined into one larger island.Over time, Tenochtitlan expanded to cover an area that was greater than 13 km square (five square miles).
