Guachimontones: Unearthing a lost world near Teuchitlan, Jalisco
Today, more than 150,000 people a year visit the Guachimontones, a local word meaning "mounds where you find plenty of bottle gourds." A well paved road takes them up the hill from Teuchitlán to a parking area which became too small almost as soon as it was created. Two of the three largest pyramids have been beautifully restored, each with its circular walkway or "patio" and surrounding platforms, which were previously bases for public buildings.
