A sacred burial ground is part of the remnants of the Natá nation, named after their cacique (chief) Natá. There are burials on display, which have been excavated from the large funerary mounds, and it is estimated that there are hundreds more in the surrounding area. Near the burials stand the ruins of what is thought to have been a solar calendar
Inaugurated on December 29, 1979 this small museum has stone and ceramic artwork dated between AD800-1500. See the mural and captions inside for a glimpse of Natá life and their first contact with Europeans.
