We drove up the hill to visit the site. All gates but one were closed. We wanted to enter the site but where stopped by an offical. It was closed, we were not even allowed to take one picture.

The site is very interesting because it is huge - and they have only uncovered a small portion of it - and because it is constructed of smaller sized rocks cemented together, not giant blocks of stone as are many of the prehispanic ruins in Mexico.
