The small archaeological site of Tres Cerritos is named after the three archaeological structures, which appeared to be hills before they were explored.


ADMIRE THE SUN, THE ROCKY FORMATIONS AND THE LAKE


Start your path enjoying the air and the sun while walking the road that will lead you to  see the pre-Hispanic culture of the ancient villages that have settled there. Once on site, feel the pleasure of walking through a rustic terrain and explore with all your senses these formations made by ancient settlers.


WALK THROUGH THE ARCHAEOLOGICAL SITE


Take a walk through the area and peacefully enjoying the air and the sun while admiring the platform, squares, shrines and the temple’s basement, all from the classical period. Go back to a distant past and imagine how the natives of pre-Hispanic times held feasts, rites and ceremonies. The first mound consists of three quadrangular platforms and reflects the construction methods of Mesoamerica.


Next visit mound’s two and three. At the height of their splendor, they contained mortuary chambers aligned with the cardinal points. Be surprised by the objects found inside, which show the enormous relation held with the Teotihuacan culture. Finish your journey watching the majestic Lake Cuitzeo on the horizon, a silent witness to the ancient cultures that settled in these lands.
