Mexico’s biggest ancient city, and the capital of what was once its largest pre-historic empire. A pilgrimage site for Aztec royalty, who believed that the gods sacrificed themselves here. Home to the third tallest pyramid in the world, built around AD 100 (before the invention of the wheel for Pete’s sake!)
What better way to experience it, than to lace up some sneakers and climb to the top of it?
El Pirámide del Sol is believed to have been built to worship the sun god, and to this day it is a site of mystical energies. Upon reaching the top, sunburnt and breathless, it’s customary to touch the center and soak up some of that good stuff. My favorite part was the dozen or so butterflies circling just overhead, attracted to something up there clearly. Pretty magical indeed.
