Mexico City Must Sees
One can't leave Mexico without seeing the mystifying Teotihuacán, a monumental city of pyramids whose builder and over 100,000 residents remain a mystery. The Teotihuacán's pyramids appear to be laid-out in accordance to celestial movements, and served as place of worship.
Only 33-miles northeast of Mexico City, the Teotihuacán will transport you back in time to the age of the following Mayan Pyramids.
The Temple of Quetzalcoatl, Mexico – is located inside a massive courtyard. Embedded in the thick stone walls of the temple are large carved serpents,' which weigh approximately 4-tons a piece.
