The most important and emblematic building of Chichén Itzá is the “Castle” or Temple of Kukulcán which rises in the center of the Main Square in the city’s most sacred place.
During its period of greatest splendor, Chichén Itzá was the most powerful city of the Yucatán Peninsula.
Entering this archeological site, whose cultural development included a period of several centuries (300 – 1220 A.D.) is one of the most exciting moments of the human adventure.
It flowered during the Classic period (750-900 A.D.) when the “Puuc” style reached its zenith; not long afterwards, the warrior traders that arrived from the center of Mexico during the 10th century introduced new concepts and beliefs that gave rise to the shaping of the style known as Maya-Mexican.
With the tour we propose you will witness, through the monuments described, the splendor of this City.
After an introduction to Mayan Culture and Chichén Itzá, this guide describes each monument in detail, with the support of color photographs, drawings, plans and maps.
