Day tour 3 archeological sites Mexico City Cuicuilco, Tlatelolco, Cerro Estrella

Outside Toks Navarte Restaurant at Metro Etiopia

$35.00

Let´s explore 3 of the 4 archeological sites open to public in Mexico City: Cuicuilco, Tlatelolco and Cerro de la Estrella. Tlatelolco is a pre-Columbian city centered on the Plaza de las Tres Culturas, a square surrounded on three sides by an excavated Aztec site, a seventeenth-century church called the Templo de Santiago, and the modern office complex of the foreign ministry. The main temple of Tlatelolco, one of the excavated buildings recently saw the discovery of a pyramid inside the visible temple which is more than 700 years old. This indicates that the site is older than previously thought, according to Instituto Nacional de Antropología e Historia (National Institute of Anthropology and History; INAH). Because it has design features similar to pyramids found in Tenayuca and Tenochtitlan, it may prove to be the first mixed Aztec and Tlatelolca construction found. Cerro de la Estrella: after a walk in the beautiful national park we will get to the top of the small pyramid, with amazing views all over Mexico City. Cuicuilco: the settlement goes back to 1400 BC. It consists of a circular pyramid constructed within a plaza with smaller structures associated with agricultural systems. By the year 400 CE, the Xitle volcano erupted burying and destroying Cuicuilco. The site of Cuicuilco is covered by a dense volcanic lava field known as the Pedregal de San Ángel. The lava covers an area of approximately 80 km², the uneven lava deposits, reaching a depth over 10 m in areas. Based on its date of occupation, Cuicuilco may be the oldest city in the Valley of Mexico and was roughly contemporary with, and possibly interacting with the Olmec of the Gulf Coast of lowland Veracruz and Tabasco (also known as the Olmec heartland). The price is 600 Mexican Pesos and includes private transport for our small group, experienced driver, and explanations in Spanish and English by certified guide.
