Los Guachimontones is a prehispanic abandoned town on a hill near Lake Vega. Circular stepped pyramids loom over the middle of circular building complexes. It existed from 300 BCE until 900 CE.

Its residents evolved the Teuchitl├ín tradition. They created small islands irrigated by floodgates, dams, and canals. On them they raised crops and hunted and fished the lake. It’s home to hundreds of migratory birds.

They founded their city next to the third largest obsidian deposits in the world. From over 1,000 mines, they extracted 14,000 tons of volcanic glass. Skilled craftsmen shaped the obsidian into swords, spear heads, mirrors, and ultra-thin earrings.

Especially relevant, the site has a fantastic museum and cafe serving pre-Hispanic food and drink. It’s a day trip from Chapala. Finally, if coming for touring and healing, contact DocTours to arrange your appointments and visit.
