What To Expect
You will be picked up at your hotel in Mexico City for a full day tour to Guadalupe shrine and Teotihuacan Pyramids.
You will begin your tour in the morning, first visiting the Plaza de las Tres Culturas also known as the Three Cultures square, the main square within the Tlatelolco neighborhood of Mexico City. The name 'Three Cultures' alludes to the three periods of Mexican history. Admire the buildings of pre-Columbian, Spanish colonial, and the independent 'mestizo' nation.
After, go to the Basilica of our Lady of Guadalupe, also called 'The Empress of America', which is a Roman Catholic basilica and a National shrine. You will see the Old and the new Basilica next to each other. It is the most important religious building in all of Mexico and one of the most visited places in the Catholic world, which annually receives more than twenty million pilgrims, therefore it is a religious symbol as much as it is a symbol of the Mexican identity.
Next, you will visit the famous archaeological site of Teotihuacan where you will see the monumental Pyramid of the Sun, the largest building in Teotihuacan and Pyramid of the Moon, the second largest pyramid in Teotihuacan. Admire the Temple of Quetzalpapalotl, a beautiful stepped structure complex with paintings, cut stone relief carvings and roof ornaments with geometric designs. Then, walk in the Avenue of the Dead a very large avenue, named by the Aztecs because they mistakenly identified the temples as tombs.
