What land did Hernando Cortes explored?

Hernando Cortes explored Mexico. Particularly the Mexican Plateau, where the land is flat, and there are many minerals. This was also the land inhabited by the Aztecs, the indigenous people of Central Mexico. The Aztecs had a huge empire that was very complex for the time. People paid "taxes" to the "government" in return for many benefits of being part of the Aztec empire, such as going to school. The Aztecs had a very large army with spears and big sticks they used a clubs, and Hernando Cortes had only one or two hundred men with him, and defeated the mighty Aztecs because his men had swords and guns, which are much more effective. There are many long-term effects of this, and they are that they speak Spanish in Mexico, and their religion is mainly Roman Catholic. If Hernando Cortes had not conquered the Aztecs, people in Mexico would probably speak the Nahuatl language, the language of the Aztecs, and the people would be the religion of the Aztecs, but I am not sure what that is called.
