  • It's an unexpected archaeological zone. A city that goes from the period Preclassic, classic and post classic. It has a series of cemeteries, a ball game as well as various structures framed by the cerro los Metates. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

  • Lost in the mountains and yet extremely important this historic city to more than one title was fortunately forgotten by the crowd of tourists. Smaller than the other cities Totonac she had 3 functions: a city of about 16,000, a cemetery for the Kings with 78 Totonac tombs and finally a defensive fortress with walls of speakers and a strategic view of the coast. The city was invaded however 2 times in 800 by the Toltecs and in 1400 by the Aztecs. Place of resistance to the invader Mexica, is where Cortes will sign a Treaty of alliance with 30 tribes Totonac for Allied soldiers. The name of the city means place of the rain in Nahuatl, the Bank of the Aztecs. During my visit I was able to admire the tombs, the pyramids, the ball game and an extraordinary view of the coast of the Gulf of Mexico in the State of Veracruz. After a rise in car and then on foot I could admire the view on the mountain which was as impressive as well as cows Totonac inhabiting the mountain, the lean with dangling ears immense and dangerous horns. A nice pleasant to visit in the quiet and without tourists archaeological area.
