Cave of the Pot

Casas Grandes

70 kilometers (43 miles) away from the city, in the direction of the Casa Blanca ranch, you will find one of the oldest archaeological sites in Mexico, the Cueva de la Olla (Cave of the Pot). This rocky formation is part of the group that is found within the Valley of the Caves.

This area usually attracts amateur explorers who like to walk in these grounds where you can appreciate the vestiges of the first inhabitants of these caves around the year 1100 A.D., who dedicated themselves to hunting and gathering, the most outstanding being the Cueva de la Laja, del Rincón, and de la Olla.

We recommend you to investigate the interior of the Cueva de la Olla, so-called because it houses a huge barn made of adobe strained in the center of the cave, whose shape is very similar to that of a vessel where corn and pumpkins were stored.
