Take a trip around Santa María del Oro
Santa María del Oro, Durango
Tecozacutla has heritage sites of exceptional value, such as the sacred site of Pañhu.
FEEL THE ETERNAL PRESENCE OF THE OTOMI PEOPLE
Leave early in the morning to visit the archeological zone of Pañhu. Be surprised when finding out it was discovered in 1988; walk through its vestiges while you learn what the most important political and social site of the Otomi people was like.
LEARN ABOUT THE SACRED BUILDINGS
Pañhu means “hot road”. Ride on these luminous roads made of tepetate as you take respectful steps over the ceremonial sites and admire the sober landscape surrounded by thickets. During your ascent of these structures, look at the glyphs and note that the Otomi people used older buildings from up to two centuries back to build their own sacred buildings.
VISIT THE MUSEUM
Delve into rare facts of this little known culture such as the practices of the Xajay culture, which developed for over five centuries from 450 AD to 950 AD. Marvel at how they flourished as a culture parallel to the one in Teotihuacan and be amazed to learn that it survived for four more centuries after the fall of Teotihuacan, the City of the Gods.
Visit this archaeological site and admire the originality of the architecture and the thousands of years of history.
