Cañada de la Virgen Archaeological Site Tour
Visit the Cañada de la Virgen Archaeological Site with commentary by our bilingual guides.
The archaeological site is located just 25 kilometers West of San Miguel de Allende. Occupied between 540 and 1050 a.d., it is perched upon a small mesa surrounded by canyons and is made up of four patio/pyramid complexes, an ancient artificial pond and a ceremonial causeway covering the 16 hectares that is now government property.
After visiting the Cañada de la Virgen Archaeological Site, we recommend 1 or 2 day trips to Peralta and Plazuelas archaeological sites as well. Both in the state of Guanajuato.
