Guided tour to Cañada de la Virgen Archaeological Site with Lunch

Cañada de la Virgen is an enigmatic archaeological zone you must visit on your next vacation in San Miguel de Allende Guanajuato! The experts think Cañada de la Virgen was built and inhabited between 540 and 1050 A.D. by the ancient Toltecs.

This prehispanic city is located just a few minutes from downtown San Miguel de Allende on a small plateau surrounded by canyons, offering visitors an incredible set of landscapes to enjoy and to take hundreds of pictures.

Through this tour at Cañada de la Virgen in San Miguel de Allende you will learn that the pre-Columbian architects who conceived this city achieved a symmetrical alignment of their temples with the sun and moon cycles. Your adventure at this ancient place in San Miguel de Allende will be accompanied by an archaeologist who worked alongside the official team of investigators of INAH in 2004, long before the site was ready to be open to the public.

Cañada de la Virgen consists of four complexes that combine patios and structures (pyramids), an ancient artificial pond and a ceremonial causeway. Each complex had a distinct function; “The House of the Thirteen Heavens”, for example, was a moon clock and helped their priests to determine hunting and gathering cycles.

Right after your archaeological tour at Cañada de la Virgen (the prehispanic name of this city had is still a mistery) we’ll take you to a neighboring ranch where you’ll have a delicious meal, probably the best you will have during your stay in San Miguel de Allende!
