As we pick you up from your hotel in Mexico City, we’ll head directly to Teotihuacan, according to Aztec myth it is “the city where gods are born” and contains more than 2,500 years of history. This is the site of the most architecturally significant Mesoamerican pyramids in the world. Entering this enigmatic archaeological site, you’ll visit a few beautiful temples, but most notably the Pyramid of the Moon and the Pyramid of the Sun. These are the largest, and most important, structures in the site.
We’ll then visit a local restaurant that serves regional cuisine for lunch (not included), along with handcraft factory where you can learn and see local artisans work made from natural fiber textiles made from raw materials and obsidian ornaments.
After lunch, we’ll head to the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe, considered the most important religious sanctuary in México; visit its atrium and interior. Here you can still see the world-famous tilma, or cloak, that San Juan Diego wore. On it is an image of the Virgen of Guadalupe, the “Patron Saint of Mexico”.
