Magueyera
Este sector del sitio tenía conjuntos habitacionales alrededor de patios mismos que estaban separados por callejones y distribuidos a lo largo de las avenidas. Sin embargo, durante los ultimos 100 años los edificios fueron destruidos y reutilizados sus materiales para la construcción de viviendas modernas.

Desde este lugar, que es el más alto del sitio, puede Ud. observar el macizo de El Doctor a la izquierda y a la derecha, la parte más alta del macizo de San Nicolás; este último que parece un cerro aislado, tiene en realidad una enorme amplitud en parte baja y llega hasta los límites con el Estado de Hidalgo.

2. Place of the Magueyes Marker
As the marker mentions, there are hardly any remains of the original buildings of the site in this area.
(Hidalgo).

English:
Place of the Magueyes
Found in this section of the site are groups of dwellings placed around courtyards while separated by alleyways and distributed along avenues. However, the buildings were dismantled over the course of the last 100 years and their materials used for the construction of modern houses.

From this point (the highest within the site), one can see to the left the mountain known as El Doctor, and to the right, the highest part known as San Nicolás. Though it appears to be an isolated peak, its great width at its base connects it to the mountains bordering the state of Hidalgo.
