Pre-Conference Tour: Teotihuacán Pyramids and Mexico City

The International Conference on Interdisciplinary Social Sciences is pleased to offer delegates an optional pre-conference tour.

Teotihuacán Pyramids and Mexico City

Join other conference delegates, the day before the conference, on a tour of the Teotihuacán pyramids (in the morning) and a guided tour of the Historic Center of Mexico City (in the afternoon).

From our local guide: "Teotihuacan, the city of the gods, was one of the largest pre-Hispanic cities and seat of power of one of the most influential Mesoamerican societies in the political, economic, commercial, religious, and cultural spheres. For the peoples that preceded Teotihuacan, this site had a sacred meaning. Several historical sources indicate that the Aztecs and their rulers came to these ruins to pray and celebrate rites. Although the origins of Teotihuacan are still under investigation, it is known that it was a pluricultural city, with an important presence of diverse ethnic groups. Three of the most emblematic points of Teotihuacan are the Calzada de los Muertos, the main axis of the entire pre-Hispanic city, the Pyramid of the Sun and the Pyramid of the Moon.

The Historic Center of Mexico City is the largest and most emblematic of Latin America, and one of the most important tourist centers in the world and the main destination of cultural tourism in the country. In it are concentrated some of the most treasured cultural objects of the nation and true jewels of architecture, such as the Templo Mayor of Mexico Tenochtitlan, the Metropolitan Cathedral, the National Palace, the Palace of Fine Arts, among others. Its cultural richness is not limited to the old buildings and museums; It is also appreciated in the streets, such as Calle Madero, one of the main access roads to the historic center. One of the most emblematic buildings of the Historic Center of Mexico City is the Casa de los Azulejos, a palace built during the viceroyal period and named after the facade made in talavera."
