Information about Circular pyramide

Cuicuilco was an ancient city (circa 700 B.C. to A.D. 150) in the central Mexican highlands, on the southern shore of the Lake Texcoco in the southeastern Valley of Mexico. Today, it is a significant archaeological site. The remains of an ancient ceremonial center date from approximately 700 B.C., and so Cuicuilco may be the oldest city in the Valley, roughly contemporary with -- and trading with -- the Olmec civilization to the south.
