Zona Arqueológica Cuicuilco

Archaeological Site in Ciudad Universitaria & Tlalpan

The principal structure here is a huge circular platform of four levels, faced with volcanic stone blocks, which probably functioned as a ceremonial center. Set amid a park with sweeping views of the area and studded with cacti and shade trees, it makes a nice picnic spot. The site has a small museum (earmarked for expansion) containing skulls and artifacts discovered during excavations.
