Tehuacalco Archaeological Site

Chilpancingo

Dedicated to sun, hills and water cult, the Zona Arqueológica de Tehuacalco (archaeological site of Tehuacalco) was first associated with the widely explored Yope culture that was and is one of the few ceremonial centers that Mexicas never dominated.

The site’s name has several ways of interpretation and there is no unanimous agreement, although the most accepted meaning is “Place of the Sacred Water”.

The archaeological zone discovered in 1998 is about 60 kilometers from Chilpancingo and the researchers have restored 11 different constructions, such as Palacio, Templo Principal, the Ball Court and the Conjunto Solar.

The archaeological zone has a small site museum where it is possible to learn about the Yope culture, in addition to its customs related to agriculture and semi-nomadic life.
