Monuments in La Palangana
These monuments and smooth stelae were used starting from 800 BCE. They were naturally occurring and then smoothed by man. They were placed in a straight line but these examples were found in La Palangana Building Complex and used as part of a later era tomb that was discovered there in the 1920s. The Stela 26 at the end of this line was also found there.
In this sector also were found four carved monuments that are now in the National Museum and some are seen in these photographs.
