Full description
Your 8-hour tour begins in the morning with a visit to the Plaza de las Tres Culturas and the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe – who has been called The Empress of America. At the Plaza de las Tres Culturas you’ll see the 16th-century Santiago de Tlatelolco Church and the remnants of early Aztec temples.

The tradition of La Villa de Guadalupe involved a miracle and an American Indian saint. With the vision of the Virgin Mary in 1531 there began a saga that helped convert millions of Indians to Catholicism, and the image became a symbol for Mexican Christians around the world. Today La Villa de Guadalupe is a popular site visited by people of all religions and nationalities.

Next on the itinerary is a visit to the famous archeological site of Teotihuacan, approximately 50 kilometers north-east of Mexico City. You’ll see the monumental Pyramids of the Sun and Moon, the Temple of Quetzalpapalotl, and the Avenue of the Dead. This was one of the few cities in the world that was considered worthy of habitation by the gods of the culture.

The archeological vestiges of Teotihuacan, such as remnants of the fine pottery produced here, have ended up in museums around the world.
