Explore the ruins of a formidable city at El Tajin, an archaeological complex and World Heritage Site. The well-preserved city was one of the biggest and most culturally important during the Classic era of Mesoamerica. The height of its powers, between 600 and 1200 CE, saw the construction of the majority of the temples, palaces, and pyramids. Admire the artistry of the carvings on the main temple, showcasing decorative techniques unseen in other contemporary cultures in the region.

  • Archaeological zone is closed. Seems like the nobody is working here for now. The only thing is one paper that said “closed”. Don't waste your time coming for now.
