With its pyramids, the largest built in the pre-Hispanic epoch (those of the Sun and Moon), its majestic Avenue of the Dead, bordered by a multitude of palaces and temples, with its extensive neighborhoods of housing, artisans and traders, Teotihuacán is the first great city of Mesoamerica.

During its apogee (between the years 200 and 600 A.D.), Teotihuacán (“The City where the Gods are born”) exerted a determining influence throughout the Mesoamerican territory.

A complete tour that enables the visitor to become familiar with the large monuments of the great Teotihuacán. Supported by photographs and an interesting text, the reader will get to know the artistic and cultural aspects that developed in this great pre-Hispanic city.

The mural painting to be found in Tetitla, Tepantitla and Atetelco, as well as the best examples of pieces of pre-Hispanic art exhibited in the site museum, are also treated in this work with special care.

Did you know that urban planning in pre-Columbian Mesoamerica actually began in Teotihuacán.

This city is where planning became evident, a particular layout, an organization of space, design and construction of various types and ranges of functionally specialized buildings, as well as a complex system of services.
