El Hormiguero Archaeological Site - Its architecture is remarkable for a building whose facade is divided into three parts, leaving at the center a large figurehead flanked by towers with rounded corners and simulated typical steps of this region (Rio Bec Style).

The figurehead presents, as an entrance to the temple, a monstrous mouth opening its jaws, a concept that is interpreted as a threshold between the outside world and the underworld.

Main occupation: Late Classic (600-800 A.D.)
