Discover the famous Teotihuacan Pyramids

Latin America


Included in the UNESCO world heritage list, the city of Teotihuacan was established around the year 200BC and fell at some point between the years 700 and 800AD.

In its day, Teotihuacan was one of the most highly populated cities in the world, with an estimated 200,000 inhabitants and was the largest city in all of the Americas prior to modern day cities.

The 2km long Avenue of the Dead is the main street and stretches from the citadel in the south to the Temple of the Moon pyramid in the north, which is the burial tomb of the animal and human sacrifices which had been performed on the site.

The Pyramid of the Sun, built above a manmade cave, is some 250 steps to the top and considered the third largest pyramid in the world.
