The archaeological site of Cihuatan, which is larger in the country, is located on the plain to the North of El Salvador. It is located in a valley between the Acelhuate and Lempa rivers, at the Guazapa volcano. Its location in this place is directly related to the landscape of the area, since the relief of the volcano recalls a feminine silhouette, so in nahuatl language, Cihuatlan means “Place of women”. His occupation has been dated to the period early Post-classic and was abandoned after being set on fire. Cihuatan site Centre is physically defined by a wall that surrounds it, and in its interior is located the main square and the Acropolis. The plaza, located on the West side, boasts two ball-game courts in the form of I, one to the West and another to the North. This last includes a steam bath, probably for ritual purification before the game at its southern end.
The main pyramid is located on the East side and 12 m high is the largest construction site. There is also a round building, possibly dedicated to Ehecatl, the god of the wind, as well as small ceremonial platforms such as the structure P-12, located in the North of the West ball-game. East of the square is the Acropolis, which housed the Palace of the Lords of Cihuatan and other residential and administrative buildings. Excavations have revealed decorations in the form of honeycomb and “biznaga” effigies, which are clear influences from the Central Highlands of Mexico. Despite extensive archaeological investigations, not stated yet if this site was inhabited by groups strongly influenced by elements of the Mexican high plateau or from migrants from the Mexican Highlands (Pipil), so this topic is still be defined.
