 Plataforma y PirámideEl basamento piramidal o Pirámide es la principal estructura del sitio, conocida popularmente como pirámide del Pueblito. Para su edificación fue necesario nivelar el terreno por medio de la construcción de una gran plataforma cuadrada de 115 metros por lado. Esta plataforma es la única estructura prehispánica del sitio que muestra tres etapas constructivas claramente definidas. La primera se asocia la fundición del sitio alrededor del año 700 d.C., la siguiente a la ocupación tolteca del sitio entre los años 900 y 1,200 d.C., y la última modificación a una ampliación por parte de grupos chichimecas hacia el año 1,300 d.C.La pirámide está formada por trece cuerpos escalonados en talud, alcanzando una elevación de 25 metros. Sus dimensiones son 83 metros por lado
en la base. Presenta escalinatas con alfardas en sus cuatro caras. Los muros de fachada en talud fueron construidos con piedra de basalto vesicular combinados con arenisca roja y calizas pequeñas. Estos muros y las escalinatas estuvieron cubiertos por una capa de estuco, la cual fue decorada en su momento con color rojo, ocre y azul.

For its construction it was necessary to level the land by means of creating a large square platform of 115 meters on each side. This platform is the only pre-Hispanic structure of the site that shows three clearly defined constructive stages. The first is associated with the founding of the site around 700 AD. The next stage is related to the Toltec occupation of the site between 900 and 1200 AD. The last modification was an expansion done by Chichimec groups around AD 1300. The pyramid is formed by thirteen steps staggered up its slope, reaching an elevation of 25 meters. Its dimensions are 83 meters on each side at the base. It has staircases with stone railings on its four faces. The walls of the sloped facade were built with vesicular basalt stone combined with red sandstone and small limestone pieces. These walls and stairways were originally covered by a layer of stucco, which was decorated at the time with red, ocher and blue colors.
