La Venta Park-Museum



REVIEW

It was designed by the writer Carlos Pellicer Cámara and remodeled in 1994 according to the project of the architect Iker Larrauri. It exhibits a collection of 33 archaeological monuments like altars, wakes and colossal heads (1300-200 B.C.), and around 650 species of living fauna, like mammals, birds and reptiles, besides the representative flora of this tropical region.  It is a combination of archeology and nature, located in an eight-hectare surface, on the banks of the Lake of the illusions, in the city of Villahermosa.  It is divided into 2 areas: zoological and archaeological. The first one exhibits animals belonging to this tropical region; and the second area has monumental pieces of the Olmec culture; it also has 33 sculptures that are classified in 3 groups: altars, wakes and colossal heads.
