Los Toriles

Los Toriles is an important archaeological site located at the southeast in the state of Nayarit. This location belonged to the indigenous tribes of the Náhuatl group, and was in use since 300 B.C. until 600 A.C. During this period it was used in the tradition of shot tombs, where offerings had been done by locating them in small chambers. After this period, when this tradition was not longer used, about 85 structures including places and buildings like palaces and temples was build and Los Toriles converted into an important cultural and commercial center until the year 1100. There are more than 85 known structures, 15 of them can be visited actually, and others remain still under the surface. The most important of all structures seems to be the circular main temple, today called Templo de Quetzalcóatl. Other important structures are the Palacio de los Relieves or the Palacio de los Columnas. To get there you have to choose the highway MEX 15 to the city of Ixtlán del Río, where 2 km land inwards Los Toriles are located. Opening times are daily from 9:00 am to 17:00 pm.
