Las Labradas: Petroglyphs

The archaeological zone of Las Labradas, located 40 minutes north of Mazatlan, is an archaeological site with hundreds of black and blue stones decorated by countless petroglyphs.

Within this display of art, visitors can distinguish human figures, marine and land animals, birds, reptiles, celestial figures and geometric shapes through which our ancestors recorded their thoughts and their relationship with the greater universe.

Petroglyphs are graphic representations recorded in rocks or stones made by our prehistoric ancestors, particularly from the Neolitic.

They are the closest ancestor of pre-writing symbols and their use in communication dates back to 10,000 BC, extending to the modern area, depending on the culture and the place.
