Teotihuacan / Mexico

Gize - Cairo - Egypt
Teotihuacán is an enormous archaeological site located 1 hour driving to north of Mexico City, containing some of the largest pyramidal structures built in the pre-Columbian Americas. Apart from the pyramidal structures, Teotihuacán is also known for its large residential complexes, the Avenue of the Dead, and few colorful, well-preserved murals. The city was thought to have been established around 200 BCE, lasting until its fall sometime between the 7th and 8th centuries CE. At its zenith in the first half of the 1st millennium CE, Teotihuacán was the largest city in the pre-Columbian Americas.
