Teotihuacán: Pyramid of the Moon

The slopes of the Pyramid of the Moon, standing above the square of the same name, display a more sophisticated architectural style than those on the Pyramid of the Sun. Fascinating excavations have been carried out on the building for the past ten years, challenging our beliefs about Teotihuacán civilisation. Digs have unearthed several funerary chambers full of offerings, including bodies of sacrificed children. The view from the top of the pyramid takes in the whole site.
