Learn about the Aztec ruins right here
The last of the great Aztec city, Teotihuacan, is in ruins in Mexico City. The Aztec ruins are visited by hundreds of thousands of people each year for all different reasons. The ancient Aztec ruins give us a sneak peek into the past lives of the Aztecs by providing us with clues and information of their lives and how the empire was run. Now they are dedicated to be national parks and monuments. The Aztec ruins in Mexico City are absolutely amazing. I've always been interested in ancient civilizations, and the first time I went to Teotihuacan, I was absolutely awestruck. There is something about going to this place of these people that lived there in the year 600, and thrived up until Spanish invasion that is just overwhelming. There is this awesome exhibit at the museum that shows a to-scale layout of the whole city, and what it must have looked like before. Though it is in ruins, there are still traces of paint and the statues and adornments of the buildings are still very visible today. Can you believe that they had running water? They used the force of gravity and rainfall to irrigate the crops, and they used the aqueducts' power to be able to have running water for indoor plumbing of sorts. The Aztec ruins in Mexico show all this evidence. In Europe at the time, there was no such thing as running water for bathing or for flushing waste.
