Archaeological Sites

Tenosique

You can find several Mayan Archaeological Sites in the Tenosique Municipality. Some of this sites are about to be explored for the first time.

The Archaeological Zone of Pomoná is one of the most important in the Tabasco state. It is located over a small hill and is conformed by 6 architectural groups.

Only one of this has been fully studied. Its modern name comes from a glyph. More recent research states that this place was actually named Pakbul. Its translation is God of the Pipe. It's architectonical style is similar to that of Palenque. This place has a Museum that is located 30 kilometers from the city of Tenosique of Pino Suárez.

A least explored zone, but nearer, is Panhalé. It is located just 5 kilometers from the center of the city, next to the canyon Boca del Cerro. Researches know very little about the history of this place (it is important to say that it is not currently open to the public). It is possible that it was used as an orel.

The Archaeological Zone of San Claudio started to be studied back in 1998 and is open to the public. Archeologists found there 35 human remains, more than 90 constructions and they believe that in this place several commercial transactions around obsidian took place.
