Mexico: Take a virtual trip through an ancient Mayan city, an UNESCO World Heritage site, or the most-populous city in North America
The Olmec people, Mexico's first complex society, emerged in the southeastern part of the country around 1200 B.C. They were later followed by the Maya, the Toltec, and the Aztec peoples. Read more about Mexico on National Geographic Kids.
Below find some virtual tours of Mexico’s most impressive sites:
Teotihuacan: This pre-hispanic city is situated some 50 km north-east of Mexico City. Built between the 1st and 7th centuries A.D., it is characterized by the vast size of its monuments – in particular, the Temple of Quetzalcoatl and the Pyramids of the Sun and the Moon, laid out on geometric and symbolic principles. As one of the most powerful cultural centres in Mesoamerica, Teotihuacan extended its cultural and artistic influence throughout the region, and even beyond. Teotihuacan means the place where the gods were created. See photos of the site here. Or take a virtual tour here.
Uxmal: This ancient Mayan city is one of the most historically and culturally significant attractions in Mexico. It was once the capital of the region. See a 'street view' of the area with Google Maps.
Mexico City: It is the capital and largest city of Mexico, and the most-populous city in North America. See some 360-degree images here.
