Teotihuacán is one of the most famous archaeological findings in Mexico which is around 30 miles from Mexico City and was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1987.

Today, it is a major tourist attraction in Mexico with lots to see and admire such as the Pyramid of the Sun and Moon, the Temple of the Feathered Serpent, the Patio of Jaguars and the Ciudadela.

It is believed that the buildings in Teotihuacán were built between 600 and 300 AD by a farming community and that some 200,000 people lived in the city. This area was worshipped by the Aztecs who were baptised as the Teotihuacán which means where men are converted to gods.

It is a fascinating place where you will see sights which will stay with you forever. You will need a whole day to see everything and you can take the opportunity to try the typical food in one of the restaurants in the nearby towns.
