Your tour will start with a stop at Plaza de las Tres Culturas.
Then continue in the northern direction, to Teotihuacan. After a visit to a crafts center, where they create products with obsidian and maguey, you will enter one of the most impressive archaeological sites of the country.
The early history of Teotihuacán, ‘the place where gods were created’, is quite mysterious. The oldest buildings were constructed around 200 BC. It is assumed that the city may have counted 200,000 inhabitants during its period of prosperity.
In those years, Teotihuacán was the biggest city on the American continent and one of the biggest in the world. Until its inhabitants abandoned the city around the 8th century, Teotihuacan was probably the most significant and civilized cultural center of ancient Mexico.
During this guided excursion you will encounter the magic and mystery of the Teotihuacan of Mexico. Admire (and climb?) the Pyramids of the Sun and the Moon. Walk down the Avenue of the Dead, visit the Temple of Quetzalcoatl with its unique stone sculptures of plumed serpents, the Temple of the Butterflies, and the Fortresses.
Before returning to your hotel, we make a stop at the Shrine of the Virgin of Guadalupe, a pilgrimage place for millions of Mexicans and people from all around the world.
