The State of Querétaro has two "World Heritage Sites" as established by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).
LA PIRÁMIDE DEL PUEBLITO
Built around 1000 A.D., this massive structure of notorious Toltec influence, is similar in size to the Pyramid of the Moon in Teotihuacán. Important relics have been found on site, such as sculptures, tombstones, calendar glyphs and many figurines, which can now be seen in the Regional Museum in Santiago de Querétaro.
The pyramid can be found right next to an open space dubbed Plaza de las Esculturas (Place of the Sculptures) in the archaeological zone of El Cerrito (the little hill).
Even though in its time El Cerrito became the most relevant center of spiritual and political activity in the region, later on it was, much like Teotihuacán, abandoned by thos who built it (presumably of toltec origins). Later settlers visited the place in order to perform rituals and present offerings.
ACUEDUCTO DE QUERÉTARO
The most prominent feature of the City is its enormous aqueduct. It was built by the Marquis Juan Antonio de la Urrutia y Arana between 1726 and 1738 at the request of the nuns of the Santa Clara Convent to bring water to the residents of the city from neighbor village La Cañada.
Its structure consists of seventy five arches, each twenty meters wide, with a total extension of 1,280 meters and an average height of twenty three meters.
