This sentence is somewhat awkward because it has prepositional phrases (of which, in the ceremonial centre, and of Tenochtitlan) and two clauses. The simplest way to rewrite it is to try to put the words in an order that makes it easier for our brains to follow.
One way to rewrite the sentence is actually to change it into two simple sentences.
The sacrifices took place at temples. The most important sacrifice was in the ceremonial centre of Tenochtitlan.
You could also say, “the most important of these” instead of “sacrifice.”
If you want to leave this as one sentence, try doing basically the same thing.
The sacrifices took place at temples, and the most important was in the ceremonial centre of Tenochtitlan.
