Museo Arqueológico Cuicuilco
Located between the two main arteries of the city (the ring-road and the Avenida de los Insurgentes), are these remains of the Cuicuilco culture, now converted into an on-site museum. This was considered to be one of the most important societies of ancient Mexico, thanks to the geographic and cultural development achieved by its people. The site includes a round pyramid of more than 23 meters (75 feet) in height, with what is left of an altar on its summit. Visitors can also see the remnants of irrigation canals, a technological leap for the societies at that time, but are advised to first tour the exhibition gallery to fully appreciate and understand the significance of the main exhibits. A visit to this museum also offers a few botanical surprises, with species of native flora to the Pedregal de San Ángel sector of the Mexican capital.
In the middle of the city, between big multifamiliars, avenues and concurred malls, waits the Cuicuilco pyramid, surrounded by a little forest whit unique fauna and herbs. Breaking the scenario, autside of the super urban context, you can go to charge your spirit whit the best energy of the spheres, the latest echoes of the old Xitle volcano's eruption.
