La Organera-Xochipala emerged as a result of various factors, most important of which was territorial defense. Together with other contemporary sites, it protected the cultivated lands of the El Llano valley.
Five stages of construction have been identified in this ancient city, from the Early Classic to the Late Postclassic, although the causes of its neglect and decay are unknown. The palace architecture is notable, with porticoes and pilasters, and a circulation system adapted to the uneven terrain using stucco-covered staircases.
Experts have defined two ceramic traditions on the site. The first was in between the Tejas and Xaltipan phases corresponding to the Middle Preclassic (585 BC) and the Classic. The second, based on the Tepenacaxtla phase, was the Late Xochipala phase in the Early Postclassic (965), with a predominance of granular white ceramics.
- The Mezcala culture to which La Organera-Xochipala belonged developed a strong sculptural style in which highly schematized animal and human forms were represented.
