Regional Museum of Archaeological of the Democracy

Unique mix of civilisations.

The uniqueness of this centre stems from its broad collection of monoliths from the pre-Hispanic era that are made from volcanic rock; but these are no normal sculptures, they are carved in human form representing bodies, heads and even pregnant women. The Archaeological Park of the Democracy also traces the development of devices for grinding corn, the foodstuff par excellence of the region, from the very first offerings to other more modern devices that were gradually improved over time. Another part that you won't want to miss is the frescoes and paintings. This artwork showcases the unique artistic trends in this area on the Mexican border, drawing on strange but exquisitely beautiful forms and colours that never fail to impress.
