MEXICO - Archaeological Zone of Paquimé, Casas Grandes

"Paquimé, Casas Grandes, which reached its apogee in the 14th and 15th centuries, played a key role in trade and cultural contacts between the Pueblo culture of the south-western United States and northern Mexico and the more advanced civilizations of Mesoamerica. The extensive remains, only part of which have been excavated, are clear evidence of the vitality of a culture which was perfectly adapted to its physical and economic environment, but which suddenly vanished at the time of the Spanish Conquest." -

Thank you so much Karla for sharing this special postcard with me!
The stamps weren't postmarked though... :( But it's alright! :)
This is my 600th UNESCO card! :)
