The La Quemada ruins are a unique treasure full of secrets still to be unveiled.

EXPLORE THE SITE 
Put on your explorer hat and start your way to La Quemada, an enigmatic prehispanic vestige that promises a wonderful day of adventure. Stroll along its paths, adorned with pleasant shrubs which dot the landscape of red, yellow and orange flowers, and be amazed at the mysteries that the old walls of volcanic stone continue to intrigue historians and archaeologists.

DISCOVER AZTEC LEGENDS
Free yourself from skepticism and lose yourself in the labyrinthine walls of what, some say, are the ruins of Chicomoztoc, the legendary Place of the Seven Caves which gave asylum to the Mexicas on their journey from the mythical Aztlan in search of the promised land.

GET TO KNOW THE HISTORY OF THE REGION
Walk through the masonry structures that, attached to the reddish hill, gave a home to a rich Mesoamerican population. Tour the prehispanic palaces that tell stories of miners and merchants. Explore the temples built for the old gods and marvel at the walled citadel that powerful warriors defended from the city's enemies.
