    The main square features the Meso-american style of pyramids. There are two temples, the first one located east, just have some stairs and is almost completely covered, but the second one located west was restored and contains some Mayan stelae and some Olmec zoomorphs in the eastern side, while the western side has only Olmec decoration.
