The city’s Central Acropolis takes the form of a narrow plaza bordered on one side by a series of small buildings. Moving south from the El Tigre Complex, you come to the Monos Complex, only 138 ft high (45m), another triadic structure named after the howler monkeys tending to congregate in this area.

Other interesting site features include the León Pyramid, at the northern edge of the city, and Structure 34 (The Jaguars Paw) - a pre-classic building with the oldest known Mayan standing wall.
