Teopanzolco - Ruin Cuernavaca - Mexico

Aside from its location in the middle of modern Cuernavaca, Teopanzolco is not the most remarkable ruin you can visit. The three-hectare, handicap accessible site contains four large, and several other smaller remnants of a pre-Hispanic ceremonial center. Two large buildings show stonework representing the Tlahuic and Aztec, occupations. Fittingly, a patch of wildflowers now marks an ancient burial site.


While signs and descriptions are available in three languages, the information offered is limited. More information may be coaxed from the ticket sellers.
