in detail

The National Park stands on a volcanic formation that emitted underground gases for hundreds of years resulting in the formation of caves. It spans over an area of 100,000 hectares.

It is a place of great historical and archaeological importance. On the slopes were found remains of pre-classic Central American cultures, like Aztec temples (a ceremonial location of at least three-floors located between the church of San Lucas and the Cuitláhuac garden is known) and remains of the Fuego Nuevo ritual. The site still holds ceremonial relevance, for today a multitudinous re-enacting of the Passion of Christ is performed every Easter.

The facilities include a family area with games, a gazebo and areas for sports. The hill also boasts breathtaking views from the east of the city, allowing you to contemplate how traditional and modern come together in the area.
