he discovery of the tunnels was made thanks to various public works that are being carried out in the state capital. Four entrances were found filled with earth. The tunnels were located in the inner zone of the historic center and on the fringe of “Los Fuertes”, ancient chapels built on top of the Acueyametepec hill, which were converted into military fortifications in the nineteenth century.
Thanks to the construction, a line of tunnels running from Fort Loreto to the Fort of Guadalupe in the upper part of town, and from Fort Loreto to the District of San Jose, located in the center of the city, was discovered. Similarly there was one found that goes from the Fort of Guadalupe to Los Remedios Church.

it would seem that some time ago earth was not too friendly on the surface as there are many caves around the world that could house thousands.
mayan or hopi stories have the surviving the last transition (cataclysm) in the 4th world underground with living like ants.

An amazing feat for such primitive people, just goes to show there is more to this whole thing than we know of...
Have you always been so obvious about your racism?

Except the tunnels were built by the Spanish 500 years ago not by any "primitives" with premetalurgical culture. Quite honestly, what the native inhabitants were building before the Spanish arrived is far more impressive than these tunnels.
Mettalurgy had been around in that part of Mexico for at least 700 years and perhaps 900. To call them primitive is a little Insulting to everything the Meso-Americans had accomplished prior to their near decimation by European contact. Just a lil food for thought.

there was nothing in that post that was racist, all i thought of when reading his post was he was thinking way back not three or four hundred years. i thought he was meaning that lacked tools, technology, skill, and other things to build on that level.
to immediately go to racism should say something to you about yourself.
