Discover La Pintada Archeological Site

La Pintada is an archeological site located some 35 miles from Hermosillo in the Sierra Libre part of the Sonoran Desert, where a rocky canyon opens up.

Findings include more than two thousand figures that are both zoomorphic and anthropomorphous. They depict the experiences of the ancestors of the Seri and Pima people. Experts date part of the findings from the pre-Hispanic era, and the other from around the 17th century. Access to the caves is restricted, but there is an interpretive center and a circuit for visitors where they can learn about the cultures that created these works of art.
