Archeological site
About the museum
The introductory gallery to the Tenam Puente archeological site has a display area of nearly 400 square feet. Tenam comes from the Nahuatl "tenamitl," which means “fortified place.” The second name came from the ancient El Puente farm, which occupied the center of what is now the ejido of Francisco Sarabia. Tenam Puente has complexes of mounds on the top of the hills.

The museum displays photographs of some of the site’s important finds, as well as a topographical map of the Acropolis showing the main buildings. There is also a stela which shows a battle scene in which one person is capturing another. We can also see photographs and a brief description of the pilgrimage of the Heart of the Virgin Mary, which the ejido members of Francisco Sarabia make to the highest section of the Acropolis. This is a movable feast celebrated in August.
