English:TeotihuacanAround 2400 years ago, the Valley of Teotihuacan was occupied by various rural communities with a population of approximately 5,000 inhabitants within an area covering 2.5-3.7 sq. mi.Toward 200 B.C., part of the population from the Southern Basin of Mexico, immigrates to the north of Lake Texcoco. This resulted in a reorganization of the settlements and a new population center
was formed in the Valley. In this way, the first planned urban settlement in Mesoamerica was born.
During the following phases of the development of the City, a sophisticated level of urbanization was reached as demonstrated by an urban plan with streets and blocks, dominated by two large perpendicular roadways running through them: the Avenue of the Dead and the East-West Avenue. Likewise, the urban planning was evidenced by drainage and a sewage system in the residential units, buildings and public plazas as well as by an official architectural style characterized as the talud-tablero (slope-panel). As its peak, the city occupied an area of approximately 14.3 sq. mi., with a population of 175,000 inhabitants. The demographic
increase, the economic development and the high level of specialization required to satisfy the needs of the population, generated great social differences, as well as an important expansion in the arts and sciences. The principal element of the government was religion; it dealt with a theocratic society with controlled not only the Valley of Teotihuacan, but the neighboring valleys of the Basin of Mexico as well. Throughout the city different levels of construction can be appreciated, which demonstrate how the city grew on top of itself during nine centuries. In this way, one can observe the superimposed buildings which correspond to different stages in the development of the Teotihuacan Culture, until its fall around
700-750 A.D. After the city was abandoned and until the arrival of the Spanish, various cultural groups, such as the Toltecs and the Aztecs respected it as a Sacred City. Settlements established themselves
on the outskirts, reoccupying the residential zones and the spring fed agricultural areas. Welcome to Teotihuacan: "The place where men become gods".Caption:The area of the site open to the public is only a small portion of what was once the great city.
