The Pyramid of the Sun in Teotihuacan

Are you planning a trip to Mexico City and looking for a unique experience? Look no further than the ancient ruins of Teotihuacán, just a short drive outside of the city. Teotihuacán was one of the most important Mesoamerican cities, and its ruins are among the most impressive in the world. Here’s everything you need to know about visiting Teotihuacán on a tour from Mexico City with Amigo Tours.


A Brief Overview of Teotihuacán’s History

Teotihuacán was founded around 200 BCE and reached its peak between 150 CE and 450 CE, when it was one of the largest cities in the world. At its height, Teotihuacán was home to over 100,000 people and covered an area of more than 20 square kilometers.


The city was built by the Mexicas, who are believed to have migrated from the Mexican Gulf Coast. The mexicas were skilled builders and architects, and they created a city that was both beautiful and functional.


Teotihuacán was home to some of the most impressive architecture in pre-Columbian America. The city’s most famous structures include the Pyramid of the Sun, the Pyramid of the Moon, and the Temple of the Feathered Serpent. These structures were built using stone, adobe, and stucco, and they were adorned with intricate carvings and murals.


Despite its size and importance, very little is known about the people who lived in Teotihuacán. The city was abandoned around 700 CE for reasons that remain unclear, and it was not rediscovered until the 19th century.
