Las acrópolis son construcciones masivas, formadas por una serie de edificios colocados uno sobre otro a través de muchos años.Estas eran utilizadas por los gobernantes como residencias y lugares administrativos, su acceso parece haber sido restringido, es decir que no cualquiera podía ingresar. Los rituales y actividades realizados en ellas eran de carácter privado, muy distinto a las plazas que eran de uso público. Lo que se observa en este conjunto es del proyecto constructivo del último gobernante de Quiriquá conocido como Jade Cielo quien gobernó entre 800 y 810 d.C.English:AcrópolisThe acropolis are massive constructions formed by a series of buildings placed one over another thru many years. These were used by the rulers as residences and administrative places, access seems to have been restricted, is that not everyone could go to these places. Rituals and activities in them were of a private nature, very different from the places that were for public use. What we see in this whole construction project is part of the last ruler of Quirigua known as Jade Heaven who ruled between 800 and 810 AD.
