This town is a mix of cultures after the Maya collapse, according to experts they have found influence of Maya, Lenca, Nahuas other ancient cultures.
Cihuatán was built on a low ridge in the center of the Acelhuate Valley. From there it could control traffic between the Caribbean, Honduras, and the rich river valleys and coastal plain of El Salvador. The site was surely picked for defense as well: the Western Ceremonial Center is surrounded by a low wall which probably supported a wooden palisade. The name means "place of the woman," from the imagined silhouette of a woman ("cihua") lying on her back along the ridge of the nearby Guazapa Volcano.The core of the city was the ceremonial centers, with their pyramids, ballcourts, palaces, and other civic and religious buildings. The Western Ceremonial Center is the best-known part of the city. On the edge of the ridge just outside is the West Terrace, which might have been the marketplace. Across a deep gully lies the Eastern Ceremonial Center.
The ceremonial platforms of Cihuatán are made of thin slabs of volcanic rock, covering an earthen core. The structures which once stood on them were made of clay plastered over woven sticks ("wattle and daub"), with thatch roofs. Both platforms and the buildings were probably painted. Large hourglass shaped incense burners once stood on the western corners of the platforms, flanking the wide stairs.
