One of Mexico’s most famous tourist sites is the la Zona Arqueológica de Teotihuacán, a majorly important ancient Meso American city, located northeast of the Valley of Mexico. With more than 264 hectares including impressive constructions like la Calzada de los Muertos, la Ciudadela, el Templo de la Serpiente Emplumada and las Pirámides del Sol y la Luna. The importance of Teotihuacán, which in Náhuatl means “where men become gods,” is based on its geographic setting. Inhabitants of other cities in the region, like Tenochtitlán and Tlaxcala, used it as a meeting point, which resulted it in becoming an important trade center for the region. If you want to visit, we recommend that you take a bus from the Central del Norte statin or the Turibus that you’ll find in the Centro.
Mexico's pre-Hispanic era (which chronologically began in the year 2000 BC) is culturally rich and particularly captivating. The experience of seeing with our own eyes the grandeur that was the pre-Hispanic villages through their architecture, daily tools and other objects of either religious or decorative significance, is the best way of taking us back in time to understand the Aztec way of life.
The best archaeological sites in Mexico City, and the surrounding areas, are both excellent options for a trip in order grasp the pre-Hispanic history of Mexico. These sites give us a clearer idea of the social and religious relations that existed within these spaces and they allow us to marvel at the passage of time and the contrasts with current society.
