REVIEW

Huapalcalco had a long occupation through history, from Pre-Historic times, exemplified by the presence of lithic materials and paintings located in the cliffs of the Mesa and Tecolote mounts; and up to a settlement dated from the Postclassic Period. The third period of occupation is the most representative, represented by the Structure VI, with a Teotihuacan influence.
