Uxmal in Yucatán

Uxmal in Yucatán

The archaeological site of Uxmal, located 62 kilometers south of Merida, is considered one of the finest cities designed by the Maya of Yucatan. Its elegant architecture is evident in each edifice (very well preserved due to the high quality constructions) even before having gone through the various restoration processes.

The ´´Piramide del Adivino´´ (the Pyramid of the Fortune Teller) stands out for its impressive beauty and was built in 5 stages, in which a new construction was overlaid each time. You can´t afford to miss the ´´Cuadrangulo de las Monjas´´, a series of buildings that have facades which were ornamented with various high and bas-relief works depicting animal figures, stylized columns and masks of the Mayan deity, Chac.
