Teotihuacan Ruins, Mexico

Teotihuacan Ruins are located 30 miles northeast of Mexico City, in what is now the San Juan Teotihuacan municipality in the state of Mexico. The site is known for having the most architecturally significant pyramids built in Pre-Columbian Americas. Also of interest are the anthropologically significant residential compounds, the Avenue of the Dead and beautifully preserved murals. The name “Teotihuacan” is an Aztec phrase meaning “place where gods were born.”
