Chichen Itza: A Marvel of the World


Chichen Itza, a Mayan archaeological site

Chichen Itza is one of the most spectacular archaeological sites of the Mayan Culture located at a relatively short distance from Cancun and Riviera Maya. Today we can admire what was their impressive religious civic complex: a great plaza surrounded by elegant decorated buildings; to the east the “Warriors Complex”, named this way for the multiple elements in the stonework representing the two warring breeds: the jaguars and the eagles.
