The city of Paquimé had more than a thousand interconnected rooms in buildings up to four stories high, all situated around ceremonial buildings, and large squares that looked like a huge labyrinth of wide rammed earth walls in the distance.

IMMERSE YOURSELF IN THE CEREMONIAL CENTER
Discover the unique buildings of the Casas Grandes Ceremonial Center. Walk through civil and ritual buildings, two ball game courts, and huge ovens which were used to produce mezcal, the beverage that connects men with the gods.

BE AMAZED BY COMPLEX HYDRAULIC NETWORKS 
The hydraulic networks provided drinking water through channels from large wells fed by a ditch from a distant spring. The network was complemented by the patio drainage system that carried rainwater to the lower housing areas through walls and corridors.

VISIT THE NORTHERN CULTURAL MUSEUM
Discover the collections of objects made by the natives in the region, and discover the magic of objects made from shell, turquoise, and ceramics, baskets, feather art, crops, textiles, personal adornments, work tools and musical instruments, mural and cave art, bone remains, and offerings.
