Tazumal is a Pre-Columbian Maya archeological site in Chalchuapa, El Salvador. Tazumal means, "place where the victims were burned," in Quiché.

In particular, the Tazumal includes/understands a series of ruins that were the scene of an important and sophisticated Mayan establishment that 100-1200DC existed around the years and that was constructed by the Mayas. The rest include systems of drainage of waters, tombs, pyramids, palaces and objects. Tazumal had one long occupation, from 100 d. C. until the 1200 d.c, although its greater development corresponds to Classic horizon (250 to 900 d. C.). From the 900 D.C. They were constructed a pyramid of style Tolteca, a game of ball, among others. Around the year 1.200 D.C. Tazumal was left definitively

The ruins of Tazumal are considered the most important and best preserved in the country. The artifacts found at Tazumal provide evidence of ancient and active trade between Tazumal and places as far away as Panama and Mexico. The excavated ruins are part of an area covering 10 sq km (4 sq mi), much of it buried under the town. Archaeologists estimate that the first settlements in the area of Chalchuapa were around 1200 BC.
