Peralta Archaeological Site

Irapuato

Built by a currently unknown civilization, the Zona arqueológica de Peralta (Peralta Archaeological Site) was inhabited between 300 and 750 AD.

30 kilometers from Irapuato, on the banks of the Lerma River, the area has a monumental architecture considered one of the greatest buildings expressions of El Bajío—it has six of the eight recorded designs of mound and sunken patio architecture.

The site has a curious basalt stone that, when hit, produces a great resonance and which, it’s believed, was used as a communication method among the valley settlements.

Finally, in the Site Museum you’ll find a sample of some archaeological pieces found in the area.
