Chichen Itza

Chichen Itza, which in Mayan means "At the mouth of the well of the Itzas" was, at its peak, the most important city politically, economically, and religiously for the Mayans who inhabited what is now the Yucatan Peninsula.

Nowadays, you can only appreciate vestiges of what was once an impressive city with roads, temples, markets, dwellings, and a population of about 30,000 inhabitants. Up to now scholars have not been able to decipher all of their hieroglyphs on the pyramids, their rites, and the purpose of each of their erections. Nevertheless, we can still appreciate the glory and magnificence of ancient Chichen Itza.

Chichen Itza, now one of The New Seven Wonders of the World, is an interesting archaeological site worth exploring thoroughly.
