    El Tajín was an important gulf coast city in present-day Mexico, founded by the Classic Veracruz culture.

    Most of the buildings at the site were constructed between 600 – 900 AD.

    El Tajin’s most famous building is the Pyramid of the Niches.

    The pyramid’s design is unique in the Americas and rises 20 meters (66 ft) on seven layers,
    with a wide staircase at its eastern side.
