Photographer's Note

Votive pyramid in La Quemada. This is the best known structure of this archeological site. Originally it was covered on all four sides by a mansory cover wall, parts of which can still be seen around the upper section of the pyramid. The southern face contained a stairway that ascended to the top of the structure, where a small temple or altar probably existed.
Archeologists believe that the place was built by the Aztecs durin their migration from the north to the valley of Mexico.
The pyramid measures 10 meters in height.
