"Pyramid of the Sun" Teotihuacan Tip by anagrettel
Teotihuacan, Mexico City: 58 reviews and 93 photos
The Pyramid of the Sun at Teotihuacan was built in the first century AD. The alignment of this pyramid was designed to coincide with the two days a year (May 19th and July 25th) when the Sun would be directly over the top of the pyramid at noon. The East facade directly faces the rising Sun, and the West facade directly faces the Sun as it sets.
A visit to México city can't be complete without a visit to Teotihuacan, it really worth it. Even my 4yrs old enjoy climbing the pyramid, it was a little scary on the way back for him, but there are some ropes that can be used as to hold in case you feeel like falling. It's a nice experience.
Directions: 30 minutes drive from México city. Ask at your hotel for tours available, there are plenty.
