AAA Editor Notes
La Campana Ruins are on the city's n.w. edge in the village of Villa de Alvarez, next to the Technological Center on Av. Tecnológico, following signs. The earliest remains of this important pre-Hispanic settlement are believed to date from around 1500 B.C. Seven pyramid-like buildings and a tomb have been excavated; structures No. 5 and 6 are the largest, and Structure No. 7 has a tunnel tomb beneath it. Buses run from downtown Colima to the site.
