Elected in 2007 in Lisbon as one of the New 7 Wonders of the World, Chichen-Itzá is a pre-Columbian city in the Yucatan. Located about 200km from Cancun, it is one of the most visited places in Mexico.
After a period of some splendour, it was abandoned in 670 and rebuilt 300 years later, regaining some of its prestige and size in the next three centuries.
Highlights of Chichen-Itzà
The Kukulkan pyramid is its most emblematic element, rising to 30 meters in height, but several other buildings deserve particular attention.
In 2010, the complex became the property of the State, which assumed responsibility for continuing the good work of recovery and maintenance.
