This is one of the places that you will find all to your self since very few people know about it, it is also near the ruins of Zempoala Veracruz and it is in the small city of Villa Rica Veracruz, most people do not even know the history of this place and it will amaze you the way it was built and where they build it. Quiahuiztlan better known as El cerro de los Metates was an ancient city built by the Toltecs and was one of the many cities that joined Cortez on it's way to defeat the Aztecs, very little is known about this place since very little work has been done to it. It is located way up the hill and a modern road was built, but with many turns a curves and if you are waking like i did, make sure to bring an umbrella or hat and lots of cold water. The best way to get here is from the city of Cardel, from there you can just take a taxy all the way to the top (it will cost you about $10 to 12 US Dollars) or take a regular bus also from Cardel and cost about $3 US Dollars. and walk all the way up. There are many buses coming also from the port of Veracruz to Cardel or take the bus to Poza Rica and will leave you right at the Highway's entrance. will cost around $7 US Dollars From Veracruz City. The ruins we're built at the middle of the hill and it is divided in 3 diffrent Locations. At the entrance the main city. up the hill to some tombs and down hill to another complex. also make sure to be well rested cause it will take lots of walking all around and up and down and down and up. Make sure to check all my photos of this amazing place in Panoramio my nick is Jarocho1. and i will be posting pictures from other Ruins and interesting palces as i travel more. There are many many other places with so much history in Mexico but sadly there's very little interest in the preservation of this beautiful buildings, I live In Veracruz city near Jamapa and here they found a piramid with unknown history but sadly about 75% of the whole structure was destroyed for brick making, that's right the people did not care about it and they kept making construction bricks with it. now very little is left of it. But anyway's if you are around the area of Cardel or planning to visit Zempoala make sure to visit this hidden jewel of ancient history.
