According to archaeological studies carried out on the site, this archaeological area dates from the late post classic period. It is located on the border between the Mexicas and the Tarascos settlements, so it is believed to have been a territorial defense. The most recent research shows that the ceramic materials found here have similar characteristics to those of other archeological sites of greater antiquity, which means that this place might have been an obligated passage for various groups of merchants, thus promoting the trade of products from Mexico’s central areas to the West and vice versa.
