Around Mexico City Sights

Pirámide de Tepozteco

  • Religious Building/Site/Shrine

Updated 01/23/2015

Fodor's Review

Perched on a mountaintop, this tiny temple is dedicated to—depending on who you believe—either the Aztec deity Tepoztécatl, the god of the alcoholic drink pulque, or the Ahuizotl, the eighth Aztec emperor. The pyramid was part of a city that has not been uncovered, but was of such importance that pilgrims flocked here from as far away as Guatemala. It attracts hikers and sightseers not afraid of the somewhat arduous climb. The view over the valley is terrific.
