Paquime photos copyrighted by: Tony Burton

The city of Paquime is home to majestic ruins constructed by an almost unknown merchant civilization, who after having a boom period, between 1200 and 1400 A.D, later abandoned their site in the late 15th century. The ruins are located in the middle of the desert and consist of a long chain of interconnected rooms, built with thick adobe walls and curious mushroom-shaped doors. The structures are ancient and tower 6 or 7 stories high, with walls and towers for protection and defense.
