Huge stones brought sown by the rivers of the south coast served as the raw material for the carving of gigantic sculptures which have been found in this region. Among them, Stela 1 of El Baul appears to be the oldest, going back to the year 50 A.D. Located in cane fields, this archaeological site is, two thousand years later, still an active place of worship. Nearby, in La Democracia and Santa Luc´┐Ża, impressive sculptures of faces and seated figures can be seen.
