In 1519, before arriving into the Mexico-Tenochtitlan Aztec Capital, three Spanish conquerors march to the summit of the 5,400 meter high Popocatepetl volcano. It is an arduous walk; they face the strength of nature and the fear of the unknown, but their mission is of great importance for the interests of Hernan Cortes’ army.
