About Cañada de la Virgen Archaeological Zone

In an extension of 12 hectares these pyramids are located as well as other buildings that are part of Cañada de la Virgen, which at the time was an important social center linked to the political system of the Toltecs. Its axis of symmetry is aimed at the sunrises and sunsets and the moon; and its design indicates cosmic cycles that governed agricultural activities, as well as hunting and gathering.
