A monumental structure from the early pre-Hispanic period, the Layzón temple takes the form of a truncated pyramid with rounded corners and containment walls, as well as tall monoliths with bas-relief carvings cut into the rock. The walls of the temple reach heights of more than six meters. To the southeast lie a large platform and various enclosures stretching along the hillside. The main structure is built from interlocking stones.
