 FortínEn la cima de la pirámide se encuentra una construcción realizada en el año de 1887 por el entonces propietario de la Hacienda El Cerrito. Se trata de una casa habitación cuya arquitectura es de tipo ecléctico, muy común en el Bajío durante el siglo XIX. Su planta arquitectónica es de tipo militar, evidente en los torreones existentes en cada una de sus esquinas. En tanto su fachada es de estilo neogótico, expresado en el diseño y dimensiones de sus puertas y ventanas. La edificación de El Fortín alteró la parte superior de la pirámide de manera irreversible, pues de haber existido alguna construcción prehispánica, esta fue destruida. Por la fecha en que fue construido es considerada un monumento histórico.Pied de dibujos:Reconstrucción de El FortínVista general de la estructuraFachada esteEnglish translation:
The "Little Fort"At the top of the pyramid there is a construction which was built in 1887 by the owner of Hacienda El Cerrito. It is a house whose architecture is eclectic, which was a very common style in the Bajío Region during



the 19th century. Its architectural plan is of a military type, evident in the existing towers at each of its corners. Its facade is of a Neogothic style, expressed in the design and dimensions of its doors and windows. The construction of El Fortín (The "Little Fort") altered the upper part of the pyramid in an irreversible way, because if there had been any pre-Hispanic constructions there, they were destroyed. Because of the building's date of construction, it too is now considered a historical monument. Captions: Reconstructed image of El Fortín General view of the structure Eastern facade
