A Very Familiar PyramidWhen I was a kid, the El Pueblito pyramid, in the state of Querétaro, looked more like a hill. It was covered by vegetation and dirt. I couldn’t believe it when I learned that beneath all that lay a pyramid!
It took more than two decades of continuous archaeological work to dig it up, restore it and preserve its treasures. It is now called El Cerrito archaeological zone. Archaeologists have found evidence of Teotihuacan, Toltec, Purépecha and Otomí influences on its architecture.
