Cañada de la Virgen, Complex D

La casa del viento (The house of the winds), also known as Complex D, is the third and smallest structure unearthed at Cañada de la Virgen. Consisting of a flattened circular “pyramid” with a circular court facing it, it is believed to have been used for ancestor worship. One further structure, Complex C, consisting of a sunken patio surrounded by platforms, is yet to be excavated and is believed to have been a market or storage area.
