BASILICA + TEOTIHUACAN day trip - Pyramids and Basílica de Guadalupe

Outside Toks Navarte Restaurant at Metro Etiopia

Let´s explore the archeological site Teotihuacán (Pyramids of the Sun, the Moon and the Feathered serpent + Palaces Teotihuacan) + the Basílica de Guadalupe. TEOTIHUACÁN Teotihuacán is a Unesco world heritage site and the most architecturally significant Mesoamerican pyramids built in the pre-Columbian Americas. At its zenith, in the first half of the 1st millennium AD, Teotihuacan was the largest city in the pre-Columbian Americas, with a population estimated at 125,000 or more, making it at least the sixth largest city in the world during its epoch. The city is thought to have been established around 100 BC, with major monuments continuously under construction until about 250 AD. The city may have lasted until sometime between the 7th and 8th centuries AD, but its major monuments were sacked and systematically burned around 550 AD. BASILICA DE GUADALUPE The Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe is a Roman Catholic church, basilica, and National shrine of Mexico in the north of Mexico City which houses the cloak containing the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe. The 1709 shrine was built near the hill of Tepeyac, where the Virgin Mary is believed to have appeared to Saint Juan Diego Cuauhtlatoatzin. The basilica structure which now contains Diego's cloak was completed in 1974. This site is also known as La Villa de Guadalupe or, in a more popular sense, La Villa, and has several churches and related buildings. One of the most important pilgrimage sites of Catholicism, the basilica and tilma (cloak) are visited by several million people every year, especially around 12 December, Our Lady of Guadalupe's Feast day. * The price during the week depends on the total number of people interested; please send a Whatsapp to [masked] to receive the price and the payment information.

Day trip to Cuicuilco, Tlatelolco and Cerro Estrella - Archeological Sites CDMX

Outside Toks Navarte Restaurant at Metro Etiopia

$30.00

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 during the week depends on the total number of people interested in the trip. Please send a WhatsApp to [masked] (Lidia Herrera) to check availability and to receive the payment information. The price includes private transport for our small group, experienced driver, and explanations in Spanish and English by certified guide. It is important to pay ideally 3 to 5 days before the trip, to make sure we can arrange the right transport for the right amount of people. Let´s explore Mexico together in safe and fun way :-).
