ALTAVISTA AltaVista is an archeological site of Chalchihuites culture from abound 200 – 1000 A.C. It was an observatory and ceremonial center, and there are still remains of its functions and great architectural techniques. In the construction of “The labyrinth” it can be seen with exact detail. The equinoctials and other buildings such as The Pillar Hall, The Votive Pyramid and the Gamio’s Stair stand out. SIERRA DE ORGANOS The rocky formations of over 250 million years old stand proudly forming different forms with originality and without limits. It’s called Sierra de Organos (organ mountain range) because of its resemblance to the cactae called “organs” and it was declared Natural Protected Reserve in 1974 by the State. The beautiful landscapes of volcanic rocks in the middle of evergreen oak and pine forest offer a wonderful view to everyone willing to get into this little paradise of over 5965 acres, located at 182 kilometers from the state capital.
