    'Ranas' archaeological site is in San Joaquin, 2 hours northeast from Querétaro, at the Sierra Gorda ('Gross Range'). There is a pyramid atop a hill and other 900-year-old buildings. Don't expect a big place like Teotihuacan, it is rather about 4 hectares in size. Entrance fee: 2.50 dollars, free on holidays. There are other prehispanic buildings here and there in nearby mountains. Those are more difficult to reach as they are hidden in the forest or there are no roads.

    In this picture you can see only a third of the pyramid.
