Teotihuacan which is today known as the site of many of the most architecturally significant Mesoamerican pyramids built in the pre-Columbian Americas. Teotihuacan began as a new religious center in the Mexican Highland around the first century AD. This city came to be the largest and most populated center in the New World. Teotihuacan was even home to multi-floor apartment compounds built to accommodate this large population. Although it is a subject of debate whether Teotihuacan was the center of a state empire, its influence throughout Mesoamerica is well documented; evidence of “Teotihuacano” presence can be seen at numerous sites in Veracruz and the Maya region. The Aztecs may have been influenced by this city. The site covers a total surface area of 83 square kilometres (32 sq mi) and was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987. It is the most visited archaeological site in Mexico. Teotihuacan Highlights: Pyramid of Sun, Pyramid of Moon, Street of Dead, Site Museum, Quetzalcoatl Pyramid.
