Cuarenta Casas

Cuarenta Casas archaeological zone is located in the State of Chihuahua, Mexico; is a very interesting place; in the cliff of "El Garabato" stream there is a series of caves, the most important one La Cueva de las Ventanas
(the windows cave), because of its complex constructions.

In 1980 the enclosures of this cave were enumerated for their description and study.

The enclosure number two is very important, because of the existence of a structure in the high part with small windows from which you can watch an extensive area.

It has several rooms, large spaces for ceremonies and granaries made with herb covered with mud.
It was constructed between 1060 and 1205 AD.
