Piramide de Santa Cecilia Acatitlán - Ruin Mexico City - Mexico

The dinky pyramid of Santa Cecilia Acatitlán (15 meters/50 feet) makes up for in loving preservation what it lacks in size. Fully restored, the pyramid is simple and elegant, with just one shrine, crowned by a circle of sculpted skulls, at the top of a series of stairways. Historically allied with the city of Tenayuca, the temple was dedicated to Huitzilopochtli, the Aztec god of war, and Tláloc, the god of rain. On the same site, the Museo de Escultura Mexica Eusebio Davalos Hurtado has some interesting ceramics (found at the site) on display.
