El Vallecito Archeological Site
- Phone number Call
An archeological site located on the west slope of the Sierra Juarez mountains, protected from the winds by small hillocks. The only structures standing are dispersed rocky shelters which reveal their treasures within: paintings drawn by the ancient Yumano civilization. A path is marked, leading you from one to another, discovering the simple drawings in white, black, red and yellow that have survived the centuries. Depicting suns, geometrical figures, animals and humans with mineral pigments, these drawings cannot be missed. Look out for “the shark”, “the devil” and “the mushroom”, while also enjoying the stunning view—yet another reason to visit.
