Pre-Hispanic Night Celebration

Pre-Hispanic culture is the name given to the historic stage of the American continent from the arrival of the first human beings to the establishment of political and cultural domination of Europeans on American indigenous peoples.

The pre-Hispanic culture in Mexico belongs to a region known as Mesoamerica, in Central Mexico and Central America. It covers three thousand years since 1500 BC. Until 1500 AD. This stage has been divided into three eras: Pre-Classic, Classic and Post-Classic. Indigenous peoples who were linking art with religion developed pre-Hispanic art.

Mexican art begins with Mesoamerican art, created by sedentary cultures that built important cities such as Teotihuacán, Chichen Itzá, Palenque, and Uxmal.

A Walk through the archaeological zone of Teotihuacán

During the International Oratorian Meeting 2018, much like in the same manner of the Oratory of St. Philip Neri, we will dedicate a day to enjoy a true example of the pre-Hispanic past.

Called City of the Gods, Teotihuacán, contains the remnants of one of the most important civilizations of Mesoamerica.

Regardless of where you start your tour, the beautiful buildings, the mystery of the walls of the Pyramid of the Sun, the Temple of Quetzalpapalotl, and the Causeway of the Dead with the structures that surround them, will amaze you.

Start your walk at the majestic Pyramid of the Sun, the highest point in the complex. Its structure was built in five construction phases. Climb its 243 steps to the top.  Its location is in perfect harmony with the Earth’s axis where the sun hides every afternoon.
