Cacaxtla Archeological Murals

Standard

One of the Archeological Gems of Tlaxcala are the murals discovered on its pyramid that was discovered in 1975. They are amongst the clearest and realistc pre hispanic paintings ever found. Only about 10 percent of the area has been uncovered so hopefully more paintings will come to light.

    • Very possible, rumor is there´s at least one more but it´s possible there are more. The Venus room was unknown until they put a roof over the zone (10,000 square yards.) and when they were putting in a support column they discovered it.
