Teotihuacan, “The City of the Gods”, is located 40 km. to the northeast of Mexico City and it is one of the major tourist attractions of Mexico. It was the largest city of pre-Hispanic America reaching a total population of 150,000 and approximately an extension of 30 Km2. This archeological relic is one of the most visited by those interested in a cultural trip to Mexico.

The history of Teotihuacan is still a mystery. Scholars still have the doubt about who built the enormous archaeological site of Teotihuacan, if it was constructed by the Aztecs or the Totonacs. The construction started about 300 B.C. The main pyramids of Teotihuacan include the Pyramid of the Sun, the Pyramid of the Moon and the Temple of Quetzalcoatl. Other striking structures are the large residential complexes, the Avenue of the Dead, and numerous colourful and well-preserved murals.

Teotihuacan had a strong influence over other civilizations, and it is believed that it had political and economical control over a vast area including the Maya Region. Although the gods were the same for all the population, the inhabitants of Teotihuacan might have been from different ethnics. The religious leaders were also the political leaders.

Teotihuacan is a very large site, so if you are planning to visit Teotihuacan, be ready for a long journey. Only if you are staying at the local hotel you will be allowed to drive around the entire site. Otherwise, we recommend to book a hotel in Mexico City.
