The second largest complex at Cañada de la Virgen, our archeological site just outside San Miguel, also features a sunken court, but unlike Complex A, has living quarters around all sides. A smaller pyramid sits at the corner of the courtyard, and is known as La casa de la noche más larga (The house of the longest night). Stone drainage culverts enabled draining of the courtyard during the rainy season’s downpours.
