ALTAVISTA PETROGLYPHCS

engraved images in volcanic stone

Two Thousand Years of History

The Altavista Petroglyphs offer an interesting and different day in the outdoors. Discovered by the National Institute of Anthropology and History, the petroglyphs are a series of drawings set in stone in what seems to have been a ceremonial center for the ancient people of the Texcoquines.

The petroglyphs possibly represent a 1,500-year historical span. Nowadays, the indigenous Huichol people still visit the site to celebrate different rituals. The self-guided tour ends up at the majestic “King’s Pool,” a naturally formed pool surrounded by cube-like stones.
