Prepare a cap and comfortable shoes, since you’ll have to walk in Calpulalpan plains and and go all over the site located four kilometers eastern Los Cerritos Archaeological Site, on kilometer 33 Federal Highway Mexico-Veracruz.

The importance of this area was the border location it had in the Acolhua region, at the eastern of Mexico’s basin of which Tlaxcala was part.

It was located on a fertile plain suitable for cultivation, an essential activity for high Mesoamerican cultures development. Furthermore, it corresponds to the Teotihuacan model of city or town in open spaces such as valleys.

According to data from the researchers, about 800 square meters and 11 small mounds have been explored.
