Teotihuacán

Posted by on Mar 1, 2018 in Mexico | No Comments

We have visited many archaeological sites at this point, from active excavations to well maintained sites with detailed museums. Now we were heading for probably the most famous site in all of Mexico, Teotihuacán. This city used to be home to over 100,000 people, making it the largest pre-Columbian American city, and one of the largest in the world at its time.

We arrived early in the morning, before the tour buses showed up and only a handful of visitors had come in. We walked the Avenue of the Dead, which is the Main Street of Teotihuacán, and climbed to the Pyramid of the Sun in near solitude. At the end of the Avenue of the Dead is the Pyramid of the Moon, with some of the steepest stairs we’ve ever seen to top. The site also contains a museum with artefacts of pre-Hispanic America.
