Cave paintings of Banzhá

Tecozautla

Tecozautla is surrounded by places where samples of rock art have been found and, so far, 26 sites with this type of expression are known.

In Banzhá, 10 kilometers (6 miles) from Tecozautla, on the rocky slopes of Cerro La Mesa, there is an excellent sample of the rock art of the nomadic peoples who inhabited the area.

In a sheltered cavity, red and white lines were found with human figures, animals, and circles that can be interpreted as suns, as well as a snake with a thick, scaly body and its jaws open as if it wanted to devour some men.

Another admirable painting is that of the men with their hands raised representing a pilgrimage and also that of several men with sticks, spears, and shields practicing hunting.
