Cuauhtinchán Archeological Site
To see Malinalco’s main attraction you have to climb nearly 400 steps through a thick forest. When you get to the top, you’ll see all your efforts rewarded as you’ve made it to an extraordinary ceremonial center carved in rock, making it the only one of its kind.
It is believed that the site was used for initiation ceremonies for Jaguar and Eagle Warriors, the highest orders in the Azteca military hierarchy.
What’s more, from here you’ll have an unbeatable panoramic view of the Magical Town. It’s something you won’t forget.
