Teotihuacan, “the place where the gods were created”, is located in the State of Mexico, approximately 50 km northeast of Mexico City.
This pre-Hispanic city was built between 1st and 7th centuries and was one of the largest urban centers of the ancient world which at its peak of splendor came to have more than 100,000 inhabitants. It was the power center of one of the most influential Mesoamerican societies in the political, economic, commercial, religious and cultural sectors.
Its monuments are geometrically located, being the most relevant the Sun and the Moon Pyramids and the Quetzalcoatl Temple.
Teotihuacan was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987.
The Historic Center is the heart of Mexico City. It was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its beautiful Colonial-era buildings and monuments.
The Zócalo, the main square of the city, is the political, economic, social and religious center of the country. Here is the Templo Mayor, the remains of the Aztec temples, and a statue of an eagle perched on a cactus, which the Aztecs interpreted as the chosen place to build their city: Tenochtitlan. The Palacio Nacional, which houses five murals by Diego Rivera, faces the square, as well as city hall and the Cathedral, the largest and oldest in Mexico.
