Tenam Puente archeological site

Comitán

Located 30 minutes (15 km/9 miles) from downtown Comitán, is the Zona Arqueológica Tenam Puente (Tenam Bridge Archeological Zone), which originally sat on a hill that was modified to create a series of terraces on which you can see buildings, squares and courts of the ball game.

Its strategic location, on the route that communicates the Altos de Chiapas and Guatemala, favored the zone to have access to commercial networks of great importance, something that can be appreciated in the alabaster objects, sea shells and metals that it protects.

Tenam Puente stands out because it represents the transition from classical to post-classical and one of the least studied stages of Chiapan archaeology. The citadel offers fabulous views of the Comitán plains, framed by multiple trees that enhance its beauty.
