Description

We are going to explore this monumental city that had 200 000 inhabitants, the largest in the American continent around the year 500 AD. Thousands of people came from all cardinal points to witness the sacred rituals in honor of the Mesoamerican gods that took place here. Huge pyramids, squares and temples crown the panorama. This great city is divided into quadrants occupied by people and cultures from distant places, such as the Mayans and the Zapotecs, and they considered this point as a universal center where the gods once met to create humanity.

The enigma of why this city was abandoned remains today. The names of their rulers are not known, nor are there traces of the language they spoke. The only documents that remain are the beautiful wall paintings in some of its main palaces and the finds of modern archaeological work that gradually reveal more clues to its organization and its mysterious end.

It is a unique place in the world. A special archaeological zone that transmits the power of its 600 years of history. It is a living document of how its inhabitants managed their abundance in food, perfected their natural resources to generate articles and tools, developed scientific principles such as physics and astronomy, and generated large-scale structures to honor their creator gods. We also have theories of his diplomacy and the infighting that may have led to its self-destruction. Many civilizations existed later in this region of the world, the Toltecs and the Aztecs came, but they all considered Teotihuacán as the center of their sacred beliefs. It will always remain the heart of Mesoamerican cultures.
