Casas Grandes

The Great Houses, also referred to as Paquimé, is a pre-historic archaeological site in Chihuahua, Mexico. This site is attributed to the Mogollon culture, and has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a “Pueblo Mágico” since 2015. Casas Grandes is one of the biggest Mogollon culture sites in the area, and established itself after 1130 AD. After 1350 AD, bigger structures and multi-story dwellings were built, and the community was deserted around 1450 AD. Casas Grandes is considered to be an important Mogollon archaeological zone, connecting it to sites in the United States, such as Arizona and New Mexico, and demonstrating the reach of the Mogollon influence.
