What you can expect

Visit two impressive ceremonial centers, Teotihuacan (Prehispanic) and the Shrine of Guadalupe (contemporary), icons of Mexican culture, representing the religious development of the Mexican people. We will begin visiting the pre-Hispanic archaeological site of Tlatelolco, or also know as the “Plaza de las Tres Culturas” with its colonial church of Santiago.

We will continue to Teotihuacan “The city of the Gods”, according with the Aztec myth, with more than 2,500 years of History. This place had a vital development, based on the use of the natural fiber textiles and obsidian tools and raw materials exchange. This will be explained in detail in a crafts center and you will have the chance to buy a souvenir alluding to this visit.

You will then enter the enigmatic archaeological site, visiting the temples of “Quetlzalpapalotl” (bird - butterfly) and the “Feathered Shells” and the Pyramid of the Moon, finally ending with the impressive Pyramid of the Sun. After our visit at the archaeological site, you will be guided to a local restaurant for your take your lunch (not included).

Afterwards, head back to Mexico City and visit the Shrine of Guadalupe, which is Mexico's largest religious shrine, where the San Juan Diego's Tilma is kept, with the most venerated image in Mexico, the Virgin of Guadalupe, “Matron Saint of America”.
