From Mexico City we took a bus out to Teotihuacan – an incredible complex of pyramids and buildings built between from about 150 B.C to 200 A.D. It is located about 50km from the city. At its height it was one of the biggest cities in the world until its collapse around 8 A.D. It We started by exploring the Citadel area.
We then walked down the Avenue of the Dead and climbed the Pyramid of the Sun for a view of the whole area. It was stunning but would maybe have been a touch more harmonious if we hadn’t been hot and hungry! We saw people doing some kind of chanting on the top of the pyramid – apparently a lot of people feel that there is a spiritual element here.
After lunch we climbed the Pyramid of the Moon and looked through some of the other buildings before heading back to go out for more delicious food with Chiquis. The complex was so interesting and so vast in scale – really incredible to walk through.
